Make a Flashes’ Food Pantry Reservation

The Flashes' Food Pantry is located in the CARES Center in suite 106 of the Kent Student Center. Students can visit the Flashes' Food Pantry on Fridays during the times listed below. 

Update: April 1, 2024

We've had a significant increase in pantry usage this fall. In an effort to ensure access for as many students as possible, we have made a few changes to our pantry policy. Starting April 1st, students must first complete the CARES Center Food Pantry Request Form. A Pantry Reservation Calendar link will be emailed to students who have completed the CARES Center Food Pantry Request Form with priority given to students visiting the pantry for the first time. Please only submit one form per month.
