The Patriot Pantry provides access to non-perishable food items, toiletries, and school supplies to students who cannot afford them. We raise awareness about food insecurity and homelessness within the Mason student population. We strive to educate and unite our community.
The Pantry, established in December 2015, is primarily managed by student workers and student volunteers and is housed under the Student Support and Advocacy Center (SSAC) in the Division of University Life. We assist member of the Mason community who may lack basic necessities such as food, clothing, and everyday items based on financial difficulty. While providing for the basic needs of the individual, we also strive to educate clients about the resources available on campus and in the surrounding community.
All the items in the pantry are donated, so we function through the support of others!
