In partnership with Community Action Services and Food Bank, the Center runs an on-campus food pantry available for students, faculty, and staff struggling with any type of food insecurity.

UVU "You Can"

The UV “You Can” Food Pantry offers canned goods and boxed items. We also offer basic hygiene kits, and items such as baby formula, diapers, etc. However, these items are available only when our partner Community Action Services and Food Bank has them in stock. The UV "You Can" Food Pantry provides grocery bags for students to use during their visit.

Donations: If you are interested in donating non-perishable food items please donate the items to Community Action Services Food Bank located at 815 S. Freedom Blvd in Provo. The Center for Social Impact is not able to accept any food donations due to processing procedures. Community Action Services Food Bank processes all food donated and sends UVU items based on UVU's needs.
