The Panther Pantry

Feeding Student Success

The Panther Pantry aspires to alleviate barriers associated with food insecurity to support student success on our campus by providing supplemental food and personal care items. Our goal is for students – and any member of the campus community - to utilize the pantry to help reduce stress about food insecurities, in turn helping them successfully complete and obtain their degrees from Pitt-Bradford.

Currently enrolled students, as well as faculty and staff, are welcome to utilize the Panther Pantry.  All that is asked in return is to pay the kindness forward!

The Panther Pantry is a donation-based resource committed to being a safe, dignified, and stigma-free environment.

Make a Donation

We are able to stock the food pantry thanks to donations from alumni, students, staff and community members. If you would like to donate non-perishable, unopened and unexpired items you can drop them off at the Panther Pantry on the Second Floor of the Commons or contact Panther Pantry Coordinator Angie Wolfe at awolfe@pitt.edu to schedule an on- or off-campus pick up.

If you would like to make a monetary contribution please contact the Center for Purposeful Engagement at 814.362.7650.
