Pride Pantry Open Hours

The purpose of the Hofstra Pride Pantry is to maintain a functioning non­perishable food pantry to serve students of Hofstra University and our community members who are at risk of food insecurity. The Hofstra Pride Pantry’s goal 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 will provide the most essential healthy food to assure that food insecure populations are benefiting from this resource.

Eligibility

The food pantry is for the staff, faculty, and students of Hofstra University. The Pantry can be accessed by any of these community members during their hours of operation.  Please note that to use the Pride Pantry you will need to bring your Hofstra ID and fill out a small, confidential online survey.
