HAPPY HOLIDAYS HOFSTRA PARENTS!
With the end of the semester quickly approaching the Hofstra Pride Pantry can support our students’ nutritional needs! Never fear, the Hofstra Pride Pantry is here!
The Hofstra Pride Pantry is here to function as a nonperishable food pantry that will serve students of Hofstra University and Hofstra community members who are at risk of food insecurity. The main goal of the Hofstra Pride Pantry is to service as many people as possible to ensure that those in need of a reliable and stable food source have support in getting sufficient daily nutrition.
The Hofstra Pride Pantry is for staff, faculty, and students of Hofstra University. The pantry can be accessed by any of these community members during the hours of operation, which are Wednesdays 11:00am-1:00pm and Thursdays 4:30pm-7: 30pm. In order to use the pantry, Hofstra community members will need to bring their Hofstra ID and fill out a small online survey. Confidentiality of all participants is very important to the success and mission of this program. Please know that all identifying information collected will be kept confidential and only used for the purpose of improving the service that we provide to our community members.

The Hofstra Pride Pantry accepts nonperishable food donations. Based on feedback and research the Hofstra Pride Pantry seeks to offer the campus community healthy food options. Some examples of stocked items might include:
