The Navigators, a UMass Lowell student organization, created the food pantry and have operated it on a very restricted budget, with little space and resources. Student Affairs has partnered with them and have relocated the Food Pantry to Room 104 in University Crossing. This space is larger, open 20 hours per week and is staffed by students. The Navigators will also meet students by appointment if the open hours do not work. We are establishing the UMass Lowell Neighborhood Food Project to supply the food pantry with a constant flow of food, toiletries and other goods. Our goal is to help our food insecure students eat, thrive, learn and be successful students.
The purpose of the food pantry is to supply free food items for any member of the UMass Lowell community who may be experiencing hunger and struggling to buy food. The pantry is open to all UMass Lowell students, faculty and staff.
