HSC Student Food Pantry

The HSC Student Food Pantry provides non-perishable & frozen food items to UGA CPH students struggling with food insecurity.

The Food Pantry is located in Rhodes Hall on the Health Sciences Campus and is supported by volunteers of the student organization, Graduate Scholars of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, and donations from students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of the College of Public Health.

Services

The HSC Food Pantry provides a variety of non-perishable items such as canned soup, vegetables, breakfast items, canned meats, and snacks. We recently acquired a freezer that allows us to provide items like fruits, vegetables, pizza, pastas, and a variety of meals and sides.

Location

The HSC Food Pantry is located on the Garden Level of Rhodes Hall in the Student Lounge. Help yourself to what you need.  Hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; or 24/7 for students with Rhodes Hall access.

Want to make a food donation? Donation boxes can be found in B.S. Miller Hall on the HSC.

In Feb. 2021, CPH Alumni Working Group member Kim Metcalf (BSEH ’93, MS ’96) donated a freezer to the food pantry allowing it to expand its offerings beyond shelf-stable items, while other members of the AWG donated start-up funds needed to fill the freezer with lots of goodies.
