Food Pantry

In order for the UVU Food Pantry to continue to show exceptional care for our UVU community, we have moved to an online ordering system. Students, faculty, and staff will be able to select the items they need and pick-up their order on a designated day. 

Orders can be submitted as needed, up to once per week. We ask that this food be used only for those in your immediate family that reside in the same household. Additional food resources can be found at bit.ly/UVUFOOD for those ineligible to use our pantry or those who may need additional resources.

Orders placed before 5 p.m. on Mondays will be available for pick-up between 4-6 p.m. on Tuesdays.
Orders placed before 5 p.m. on Wednesdays will be available for pick-up between 4-6 p.m. on Thursdays.
If these pick-up times do not work for you, please contact Amber Hendrickson at amber.hendrickson@uvu.edu. 

Orders should be picked up at the Center for Social Impact - SC 105

PLEASE NOTE: Items requested will be distributed based on availability. Some substitutions may be made.

UVU Food Pantry

In partnership with Community Action Services and Food Bank, this on-campus food pantry is available to students, faculty, and staff struggling with food insecurity.

The UVU Food Pantry offers canned goods and boxed items. We also offer basic hygiene items, and some baby products such as formula, diapers, etc. These items are available only when our partner Community Action Services and Food Bank has them in stock.

The UVU Food Pantry provides bags for students to use during their visit, though students are  encouraged to bring reusable bags.
