Information for Students:
The Food Pantry will be open from 10 am – 3 pm on Monday and Thursday during the summer months.
Students from ISU, RHIT, SMWC, and Ivy Tech are allowed to utilize the Student Food Pantry once per week with a valid Academic ID.
Upon verification of Academic participation in one of the above listed Higher Education institutions each student will be provided one bag by the Food Pantry attendant to fill as needed. This bag is for non-perishable items. Cereal boxes are in addition to the bag and are not counted as part of it. Personal Hygiene items are available as well with their own small bags located inside the PH closet. Limitations on fresh items are posted on the refrigerator and freezer units.
Students who care for family members are eligible to fill TWO bags.
If you are in need of the Student Food Pantry resources and are not able to attend during the designated hours please contact the office at 812-232-0186 to schedule an appointment.

Our Food Pantry is staffed by Work Study students through ISU work study grants.

We LOVE our student workers and couldn’t do it without them!
HISTORY OF THE STUDENT FOOD PANTRY
The student food pantry was initially funded by 100+ Women Who Care, a philanthropy organization in Terre Haute, IN. The SFP has also been a recipient of grants from the Presbytery of Ohio Valley Monroe County Grant, Wingstop Charities (2x recipient), Cares Grant, Sodexo community support, the Miracle on 7th street grants and multiple Thrivent grants through Trinity Lutheran church members.
We continue to give thanks and praise to the congregations who have come alongside our Student Food Pantry to provide regular monthly support. If you are interested in becoming a sustaining Congregational Partner please reach out to the office and someone from the Food Pantry Committee will get in touch with you.
