Enter the building’s lower level using the northeast doors and maintain social distancing at all times.
Wait at the entrance of West Side Market for assistance. Employees will provide you with food items.
Once you have your food, exit the building quickly.
Campus dietitians have also created recipe cards that will be available to help with meal ideas to utilize food-pantry products.

This service is a collaborative effort of units in the Division of Student Affairs. Daily operations are managed by ISU Dining and the Department of Residence. Financial support from the Cyclone Strong Fund also made this project possible.

At this time no donations of food can be accepted. However, those wanting to support the project can do so by donating directly to the ISU Food Pantry Support Fund here:
