The Center for Academic Success and Engagement office, located in the Paul L. Foster Success Center, hosts a student food pantry called The Store. Students who would like to access The Store can stop by Monday-Friday, 8 am-5 pm, complete a once a year intake form, and then select the food items they need.
Low income students often feel more marginalized and struggle to develop a sense of belonging. These struggles can be compounded when students are unable to access adequate amounts of food because of the stigma that comes with being hungry. The Store seeks to meet that need! This food pantry will provide students in need with supplemental food so they can bring their best to the campus environment and have the strongest likelihood of achieving academic success. By placing a food pantry in the Paul L. Foster Success Center, we normalize food resources as one of the supports that students can utilize to fully thrive at Baylor.
Our greatest needs at this time are financial donations to provide a limited amount of meal plans for students who need additional food resources during COVID-19, as well as, toiletries and hygiene items.
If you are able to partner with us through a financial donation, please visit our Give site
In addition to The Store, Baylor students can access The Fridge, Free Farmers Market, and Mobile Food Pantry on campus. Click the icons below to learn more about these resources.
