As we continue to stay dedicated to serving and supporting all students and postdocs in the Rochester area during the COVID-19 health concerns, we will be using a Campus Community Connection (CCC) form to process Grocery Bag orders for pick-up.
The Food Pantry is open to ALL undergraduate and graduate students, as well as postdoctoral appointees, at the University of Rochester.
While the Food Pantry is need-blind and does not require income or financial aid information to be served, in order to be able to make our supplies last and meet the current high demand, we ask that you consider whether the Food Pantry is right for you.
The Food Pantry should be used by any students or postdocs who: a) is food insecure; b) may be facing a change in employment status, and c) is currently in quarantine or isolation without the financial means to order food
While we understand that going to the grocery stores can be difficult for everyone at this time, if you have the financial means to do so, we ask that you consider the following options before using the Food Pantry: Grubhub, Amazon Pantry, Walmart Grocery Delivery, InstaCart.
River Campus Location
Bags can be picked up at the Harnett Gallery located in Wilson Commons 204 on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Orders need to be placed no later than 9 a.m. the day you are selecting to pickup on. Once a bag is ready to be picked up users will receive an approved CCC form with instructions.

Once a bag is ready to be picked up users will receive an email with instructions.
Eastman School of Music Location
Eastman School of Music students should use this branch. ESM students should not use the Order Form to place an order, but can instead arrange for an order and pick-up time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Depending on what time it is, we may be able to help you with a same-day order. Before using the form to place an order, please emaildirectly.
If you are in quarantine or isolation in campus housing without the financial means to order food, we will work to do a non-contact delivery (if possible). Please complete the form as normal, and input this information when asked.
If you are feeling unwell, we ask that you do not come to pick-up your bag. Please stay within your residence and ask a friend to pick up your bag for you. When completing the form, you can indicate that you are sending someone else to pick up your bag.
Groceries bags will be filled with 7 to 10 non-perishable food items. Please note that when completing the form, you are not placing a direct order. Your preferences checked within the form will help us create your bag, but no food items can be guaranteed. The form requests information on dietary restrictions. We will do our best to avoid items that you did not indicate as preferred.

At this time, the Food Pantry can be supported in a variety of ways. Support our Crowdfunding effort and make a monetary donation online to help as we purchase food to stock our shelves.
Donations can also be made via our Amazon Wishlist. Food items on Amazon currently go in and out of stock quickly, and our list may not be up to date with In Stock items. We are in need of all non-perishable food items at this time, and encourage you to look for items that are not on the list that may be in stock. You can also get in contact with the Pantry Coordinator to coordinate donations through other grocery delivery services, such as Walmart and Wegmans.
