The FIT Food Pantry is a direct response to the State University of New York (SUNY) system initiative to provide students with more immediate resources to fight food insecurity. SUNY & FIT recognize that due to the rising cost of attending College our students are struggling to balance the costs of personal necessities such as food while paying for tuition, textbooks, and art supplies, just to name a few. The Food Pantry was put in place to help students thrive as they complete and obtain their degrees from FIT.
How to Use the Food Pantry
The Food Pantry can only be accessed by FIT students who are currently enrolled (full-time or part-time) in a degree program at the College. Staff in the pantry will be checking the enrollment status of students accessing the pantry at least once per semester.
Students can access this pantry to pick up food on a daily basis based on the meal(s) they require for that day. All students who access the space will be required to complete a brief intake form as well as a Terms and Conditions document the first time they access the space. After this, students will be asked to provide minimal information each time they revisit the pantry. Your information will be kept as private as possible. Student staff will then assist with what the students need for the day. For students who may have a greater need we hope you will take a look at our listing of local resources.
Products offered in the pantry are based on availability.
If you have any questions, please email [email protected]. If you are unable to gain access to the pantry during pantry hours, please visit the Department of Student Life in Room A-713.
