"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"


Campus Food Pantry

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.   

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.  Food Pantry boxes can be picked up Monday-Friday between 9am-4pm.  There will be no weekend pick up times available until further notice.  For questions, or special dietary needs, please email the LIC to have a box ready at lic@uwlax.edu.    

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.
