Pantry Policies & Procedures

  • All CMU students are eligible to use the Pantry to receive free food assistance for themselves and their dependents.
  • The CMU Pantry is intended to be a supplementary source of food. As always, we ask that shoppers utilize the Pantry as needed, keeping in mind that our resource provides for many students in the CMU community, so shoppers should not use the Pantry to “stock up” supplies of food at home. If you find that you need more food than the Pantry can provide, please speak with one of our staff members or email to be connected with other food resources in the area.
  • Another person, such as a friend, partner, or roommate, may shop in your place if you are unable to make it to the Pantry yourself. The Pantry Shopping Time Calendar includes an option for you to authorize someone else to shop for you.
