URSU Adds More Pantry Dates to Help Students Facing Food Insecurity

Students, you can now choose from two different dates to stock up on the stuff you need and the fresh fruit and vegetables you want! The next URSU Cares Pantry will be from 3pm to 5pm on May 5th AND 6th, from 3pm to 5pm. This pantry will be held in the URSU Multi Purpose Room (RC 128) on the first floor of the Riddell Centre.

With generous help from Save-On-Foods, the URSU Cares Pantry provides students with fresh fruit and vegetables, essential toiletries, and other items for FREE.

Please wear a mask and bring a reusable bag on May 5th OR 6th to stock up on essentials and help alleviate some of the ache school puts on your bank account. Click the link below or the URSU Cares Pantry link in our Insta Bio Link Tree, then register for a time between 3pm and 5pm that works for you.

Students who attend the URSU Cares Pantry program are able to get free groceries and toiletries. Examples of items available include fruits, vegetables, cereal, Kraft Dinner, jams and spreads, bread, canned food, deodorant, shampoo, soap, toothpaste, and a lot more. Members are asked to take no more than 1 of each item. If there is something specific you’d like to see in the future, let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

1) You MUST register for a specific 30-minute time slot before the event. If you are not registered in advance, you will not be allowed in.
2) Please do not come any earlier than 15 minutes before your registered time slot. If you come early, you will not be allowed in until your time slot. You can come later than your time slot if you were held up for any reason.
3) When you register, that slot is for you and you alone. Please do not bring along additional family members or friends.
4) Please bring a bag or two with you to pick up and carry out your items. Bringing your own bag(s) cuts down on waste and saves us money that we can spend on more food instead of more bags.
