Student Advocacy and Support

The University of Toledo Student Food Pantry is a critical part of the Division of Student Affairs, ran by the Office of Student Advocacy and Support.

Our Mission

We work to provide temporary food aid for enrolled University of Toledo students who are in need.
Our goals are to:

  • Create a sustainable resource for students to temporarily help meet food needs of students on campus
  • Provide students accessing the food pantries with additional resources to help them succeed
  • Involve additional resources and community partners to assure the sustainability of the pantries

Eligibility
All current UToledo student are eligible to use the student food pantry. Please visit our eligibility page for additional information.

Current Location Hours

If you are staying in the Toledo area and need assistance with food security due to the changing circumstance associated with COVID-19, the University’s Student Food Pantry is available for support. In the interest of maintaining and encouraging good social distancing practices (6 ft. apart), we’re limiting one person in the pantry at the same time as our student-staff member. Please be prepared to provide your Rocket # to our student-staff member.

Currently, only the Main Campus Food Pantry is open. It will serve students Monday — Thursday from 8:15 a.m. – 5 p.m.

If you’re unable to enter the Food Pantry due to illness or any other reason, email rocketresponse@utoledo.edu, or call us at 419.530.5923. We’ll be happy to serve you curbside in the rotary drive at the Student Union.
