Husker Pantry resumes in-person visits

Husker Pantry wants to collect at least 2,021 items during the last ten days of March to build up inventory so Huskers have uninterrupted service during the summer months.
The Husker Pantry, which provides necessities free of charge to students, started offering in-person services on May 12. The pantry is located in the University Health Center, room 123.

Husker Pantry has opened its doors again, allowing in-person visits to help University of Nebraska–Lincoln students seeking food, personal hygiene items, school supplies and cleaning products.

The pantry reopened May 12. Along with necessities, the pantry offers Student Money Management support programs. It is located in the University Health Center, room 123. Big Red Resilience and Student Money Management are in room 127.

Launched in 2016, Husker Pantry aims to help students by offering free food staples and hygiene items. More than 30 percent of Nebraska students experience some level of food insecurity each academic year. In-demand items include pastas, rice, breakfast cereals, canned meats and tuna, canned vegetables, fruits, and beans, soaps and shampoos, toothpaste, and personal hygiene items. Pantry operations are staffed by student volunteers and a graduate assistant.

Members of the campus community can also give to the pantry to help support students.
