Boynton Health's Food Pantry is open the last week of every month during the semester (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday), from 12-6 pm on the 1st floor of Memorial Union (Room 103A), across the lounge from the theater.
Any student can visit the food pantry. No proof of need is required.
Students choose from available food items during their visit. We encourage students to bring their own bags to carry items.
Paper bags are also available.

About the Food
The Food Group, a local food bank, offers Nutritious U extremely discounted prices for fresh, wholesome food items. Student volunteers stock the pantry shelves with a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, and proteins. We offer fresh produce grown at the Student Organic Farm on the St. Paul Campus in the fall. We also partner with local bakeries, including Einstein Brothers in Coffman Union and Cub Foods, for fresh bread, bagels, and pastry donations.
Support U Students
Nearly one in five University of Minnesota Twin Cities students worry whether they will run out of food before they have money to buy more or have run out of food in the past year. When you support Boynton Health’s Nutritious U, you help students struggling to get enough fresh, healthy food.
Please consider a gift of any amount to Boynton Health’s Nutritious U Food Pantry through the University of Minnesota Foundation.
