Hours & About Us
Covid 19 – Change in Policies and New Information
Due to recent events surrounding the Novel Corona Virus, the Feed U Pantry is taking precautions to keep both our volunteers and clients safe and healthy while keeping our doors open as much as possible for the Spring semester.
We are asking volunteers to wash their hands before beginning their shifts. We are also implementing a hand sanitizer dispenser in the pantry. Furthemore, until further notice, 1 client will be allowed in the pantry at a time, and the volunteer will fill the bags with food on their behalf.
Our volunteer availability and hours will be sporadic, but we will aim to be open as much as possible. The hours below are accurate and updated weekly on Sunday Evenings. These will likely change week-to-week.
We thank you for your patience as we work to adapt this resource. As new information becomes available, these policies may change further. This webpage will be updated with new policies/info, and this information can also be accessed by following us on social media: Instagram or Facebook @feedupantry
The pantry is located on the basement level of the A. Ray Olpin Union building.
The University of Utah food pantry aims to minimize hunger among our students, their families, and faculty and staff by providing free, accessible, and nutritious food. We strive to empower those in need to obtain food resources so they may focus on being healthy, happy, and successful at the University of Utah without the barrier of fighting hunger.
The University of Utah food pantry provides non-perishable, nourishing food for our students, their families, faculty, and staff. Why? Because there are times when we all have struggles: Loss of a job, paying tuition, medical emergencies. The basic demands of life sometimes make us have to choose between food or bills. We don’t want any member of our Campus Community to have to choose between having some food on the table and keeping up with the emergencies that come up.
Since opening in October 2014, the volunteer-powered Feed U Food Pantry has impacted over 1,000 University of Utah members and their families.
Who does the Feed U Pantry Serve?
The Feed U Pantry is open to all University of Utah students, faculty, and staff with a current University of Utah ID.
