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.
