As food insecurity becomes a growing concern for college campuses, Rice is proud to join the efforts of campus food pantries nationwide. The Pantry operates on a good-faith basis and is an anonymous resource for all students, faculty, staff, and community members. It is our goal to ensure The Pantry is a space where individuals feel welcome and that this is an accessible resource.

Hours of Operation
Monday-Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm

The Pantry is located in Rice Memorial Center on the left of The Chapel.
