Bear Market Food Exchange

Located outside of our offices on the 4th Floor of Page-Robinson building (across from Room 411), this pantry shelf is stocked by donations from students, faculty and staff, and supplemented monthly by the Office of the Chaplains and Religious Life.


This small food pantry is available for anyone struggling to get enough to eat. Please feel free to take anything on the shelves.

All community members are welcome to contribute non-perishable food. If you would like to donate, you can drop off your donation in a bag or box, or simply add food to our shelves.

Some items you might typically find on the shelves are:

  • Oatmeal
  • Cereal
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Beans (Dried or Canned)
  • Canned Vegetables & Fruit
  • Canned Fish
  • Peanut Butter
  • Protein/Energy Bars
  • Microwave Popcorn
  • Tortillas
  • Soup (Canned, Cups/Ramen)
  • Sauces/Salsa
