The purpose of the U-ACCESS Food Pantry is to supplement the food supply for any UMass Boston students who may be experiencing hunger and struggling to buy food. College students who experience food insecurity often struggle to support themselves while working, attending classes, and dealing with other life issues. The U-ACCESS Food Pantry hopes to minimize food insecurity while UMass Boston students work toward completing their education. The U-ACCESS Food Pantry is open to all UMass Boston students. The Pantry provides a bag of grocery items and other donated items such as toiletries for pick up every week. Students with children under the age of 18 are welcome to participate. We serve students who have dietary restriction such as diabetic, vegetarian, gluten allergy, vegan (raw or cooked), lactose intolerance, etc.
