Pantry Needs

The Lion’s Pantry accepts non-perishable, unopened and non-expired food and toiletry donations. Items can be dropped off at the Pantry during open hours, Tuesdays and Fridays from 3-5pm (SUMMER 2019 change: Tuesdays 3 – 6 PM & Fridays 3 – 5 PM) or emailing lionspantrypsu.donations@gmail.com if those times do not work. The items listed below the category titles are the items most needed/examples in that area. If you find other items in that area please feel free to donate them! 

The Pantry provides reusable bags for students to use for carrying items. If possible, it is helpful if donations are dropped off in reusable bags that the Pantry can keep!

For additional information or questions please email us at lionspantrypsu@gmail.com.

If you or your organization is interested in hosting a food drive to benefit The Lion’s Pantry, please contact  lionspantrypsu.donations@gmail.com.
