West Pantry location (Pride Alliance Center)

After much consideration, pickup bag service has been halted for the remainder of the summer after seeing a decline in usage of this service. Moving forward, we are planning for how to best use the West Pantry space during the fall semester and will keep you updated. We understand this is different than you might have expected for the rest of the summer, so if this presents an issue for you, please email us at studorg-foodpantry@uiowa.edu, or reach out to our advisor at sarah-henry@uiowa.edu
