"Dear Food Pantry, 

Thank you so much for providing this service. You have helped me in hard times, and I am so appreciative. This place has positively impacted my life. Although I cannot now, hopefully someday I can repay you for everything you have given me. 

Thank you with all of my heart"

About the Food Pantry

The Leadership & Involvement Center (LIC) coordinates the food pantry on campus that is available to UWL students, faculty, and staff. The Food Pantry is located in 2220 Student Union, inside the COVE. The Food Pantry is accessible by card swipe (see below); it can be utilized whenever the Student Union is open.

Accessing the Food Pantry

Due to COVID-19 access to the food pantry has changed.  Students will need to visit the front desk of the COVE to receive a prepackaged box from the food pantry.  The COVE is located on the second floor of the Student Union, room 2200.  Please bring your student ID to receive your box.  

Some examples of food in the food pantry are tuna, peanut butter, jelly, pasta sauce, pasta noodles, soup, vegetables, and fruit. 

Where does the food come from?

Most of the items in the Food Pantry are generously provided by the Hunger Task Force of La Crosse. We also rely on food and monetary donations from the campus and La Crosse community.
