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.

Support U Students

Nearly one in five students worry whether they will run out of food before they have money to buy more, or have run out of food. When you support Nutritious U, you help students struggling to get enough to eat get access to fresh, healthy food.

Please consider a gift of any amount to the Nutritious U Food Pantry through the University of Minnesota Foundation.
