What is the Food Pantry?

In partnership with Community Action Services and Food Bank, this on-campus food pantry is available to students, faculty, and staff struggling with food insecurity. The UVU Food Pantry offers canned goods and boxed items along with basic hygiene items, and some baby products such as formula, diapers, etc. These items are available only when our partner Community Action Services and Food Bank has them in stock. The UVU Food Pantry provides bags for students to use during their visit, though students are encouraged to bring reusable bags.

In addition, meal vouchers for campus restaurants are also available for use up to three times per semester.

Hours: Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Please keep in mind that sometimes we are in meetings or attending other events during these hours.
