Student Food Pantry

About the Pantry


As part of the UM-Dearborn Community, the Student Food Pantry exists to support students on their journey as they work toward achieving their goals. We are committed to increasing access to food as a key to success, by providing assistance to any student in need!


In the summer of 2012, students and staff from the UM-Dearborn Community recognized that many students on campus did not have regular access to food. Understanding that food insecurity and inaccessibility was proving to be a barrier to students ability to be successful, the CIViC team, in collaboration with various partners across campus, worked to create and establish the UM-Dearborn Student Food Pantry. 

The UM-Dearborn Student Food Pantry was officially dedicated on January 21, 2013, the day which marked the 20th anniversary of the University's MLK Day of Service.  


Individual must be a currently enrolled UM-Dearborn student with picture ID. The UM-Dearborn Student Food Pantry is located in room 2130 in the University Center.

The Student Food Pantry will be open for in-person shopping during the following times during the Fall 2022 semester:

  • Mondays: 10 AM - 4 PM
  • Tuesdays: 9 AM - 5 PM
  • Wednesdays: 9 AM - 5 PM

  • Reopens Tuesday, January 3, 2023. Winter hours to be posted. 

Due to COVID-19, a limited number of students will be allowed to shop in the pantry at one time. If you visit, please bring your M-Card with you. No appointments required unless otherwise stated.
