The Store

The Paul L. Foster Success Center-Student Success Initiatives hosts a student food pantry called The Store. The Store is located in Sid Richardson 047 (east wing, lower level) and open Monday-Friday, 8:30 am-4:30 pm.  Students who would like to access the store can stop by anytime during this time frame and fill out a brief form and then select the food items they need.  Students can access The Store twice a month.

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.

Want to donate to The Store?  Please bring any food items you want to donate to Student Success Initiatives (lower level, east wing) anytime between 8:30 am-4:30 pm (Monday-Friday).

Our greatest food needs at this time are:

  • Breakfast items (granola bars, oatmeal, etc)
  • Shelf-stable milk (Ultra-high pasteurized milk, does not need refrigeration and has a long shelf life)
  • Trail Mix
  • Fruit cups
  • Spaghetti & Spaghetti sauce
  • Toiletries
