Campus Food Pantries

Syracuse University has two food pantries on campus, one on Main Campus in Hendricks Chapel and the other on South Campus in the Office of Sustainability Management. The food pantries are managed by Hendricks Chapel, with a strong partnership with Sustainability Management for the South Campus Food Pantry. Student volunteers are needed at both pantries throughout the year to help fellow students within the pantries, stock the shelves, take inventory of supplies, assist with Adopt-A-Month program, and help with donations when needed.
