Student Food Pantry

The purpose of the food pantries is to serve FIU students in need. The pantries are available to students on both campuses. The BBC Student Food Pantry, located in WUC 307 is run by the department of Healthy Living Program. The MMC Food Pantry, located in DM 166 is run by the Center for Leadership & Service. Both pantries are donations based, which means that all the food distributed comes from donations made by staff, faculty, members of the community, and student groups.
