Food drive to collect 2,022 items for Husker Pantry

Husker Pantry (City Campus) and Maverick Food Pantry (Scott Campus) rely on donations to keep shelves stocked.

University of Nebraska–Lincoln students are average more than 1,000 monthly visits to the [Husker Pantry]( locations on City and East campuses, translating into almost 6,000 items being distributed every month to help Huskers with food insecurity.

From March 21-25, the pantry will host a Spring Food Drive, asking the university community to donate 2,022 items. The event is one of two collection drives coordinated annually by the pantry and its volunteers.

The pantry provides two on-campus locations to assist students with food, toiletries and personal hygiene items, school supplies, and cleaning products. It relies on donations to keep the shelves stocked so students do not suffer from hunger. 100% of donations benefit university students.

There are two ways to provide donations to the pantry:

- [Purchase online]( via the pantry’s Amazon Marketplace wishlist. Items are shipped and delivered directly to the pantry location inside the University Health Center.
- Drop off locally-purchased items at one of 20 collection bins located across the university. [Find a location.](
