Field & Fork Pantry

We help UF students, faculty, and staff experiencing food insecurity. The Pantry offers non-perishable food, toiletries, and fresh produce grown at the Student Gardens. We will not ask guests of The Pantry to verify income or need. We trust that guests will use The Pantry only when they have a need to use the service. Just stop by with a valid Gator 1 ID. We hope to chomp out hunger, one step at a time. Learn More
