Flash's Food Pantry receives fresh produce from Flash's Food Garden at Kent State Stark.


HELP US FEED THOSE IN NEED

Flash’s Food Pantry relies on the generosity of its supporters to help fight hunger on campus. Monetary donations and non-perishable food can be donated at the pantry. Flash’s Food Pantry works with Interfaith Campus Ministry and the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank to directly purchase food at a discounted rate. This helps to maximize dollars raised for the pantry. 

Top 10 Donation Wish List

  • Boxed cereal
  • Peanut butter and jelly
  • Canned fruits and vegetables
  • Canned meats (tuna, chicken, etc.)
  • Rice
  • Pasta and pasta sauce
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Bar and liquid soap
  • Toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • Baby diapers and formula

Become a "Pillar" of the Pantry

Flash's Food Pantry needs individuals (faculty, staff and/or students) to sponsor at least one staple product offered in the Pantry (see list below). As they shop, these individuals or "Pillars" of the Pantry should pick up their sponsored item(s) and donate it/them to the Pantry. This will greatly offset ongoing costs for popular items we cannot keep on the shelves.

We need Pillars for:

  • Gallon of milk (1%, 2%, whole)
  • Toilet paper
  • Baby wipes
  • Peanut butter
  • Applesauce (1 container)
  • Pasta (1 box)
  • Pasta sauce
  • Granola bars (1 box)
  • Butter (1 container or 1 box of sticks)
  • Baby food in jars or pouches
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
