We are excited to work with you to collect food and other goods for our food and resource insecure students. Did you know that 35 percent of college students report having been food insecure during their college experience? That some of our students have to choose between food and textbooks? That there are over 58,000 self-identified homeless college students in the U.S.?
The numbers are staggering, and are growing.

Donations will go to our UMass Lowell Navigators Food Pantry located in University Crossing, Room 104 (near the Solution Center). Designated areas on campus (see below) will be available to drop-off donations.

In the 2018-2019 academic year, our monthly food drive collected over 6,500 pounds of donations across campus! Thank you!
You can help by participating in the UMass Lowell Neighborhood Food Project! This is a revolutionary way to collect food! It’s a donor drive and getting involved couldn’t be any easier. We have adopted a system that makes it easy for people to donate nonperishable food items or other needed goods.
