National research shows that 1 in 5 college students experience some form of food insecurity. The need for a pantry on our own campus is just as great. In 2013/14, 64.5% of Tunxis students (a total of 2,960 individuals) suffered from the risk of food insecurity.


thePantry@Tunxis is in room 1-161. You can get there by entering the 200 building then going up the ramp on your right.

How Does The Pantry Work?

Students are allowed to self-refer, or may be referred by campus departments. Students in need are welcome to visit the Pantry as many times as they choose throughout the month, however, the total number of items taken can’t exceed the 20-item limit for the month. Students are encouraged to bring their own grocery bag or to reuse the bag they are given upon their first visit to the pantry. Students must present their Student ID or other proof that they are a current, registered Tunxis student in order to receive food.
