About the Resource Pantry

The Resource Pantry is open to all West Chester University students. The pantry provides students facing financial hardship or food insecurity with non-perishable food, fresh produce, personal care supplies like toilet paper and laundry detergent, as well as school supplies. The pantry also offers professional and winter attire. The Pantry works with several offices across campus to host events to equip students with additional tools. These include cooking demonstrations focused on preparing nutritious meals, and career readiness and financial literacy workshops.

How it Works

The Resource Pantry is open to ALL undergraduate and graduate students at West Chester University. No appointment necessary, walk-in’s are welcome at any time during our hours of operation.

Visiting the pantry for the first time? A Pantry staff member will be happy to help you fill out our simple application form and show you around. After that you are free to shop for whatever items you need.

You are welcome to return to the pantry whenever you need to. We do not limit the amount/number of items you take, we just ask that you let us weigh your food before you leave.
