Pitt-Johnstown Provides Food Pantry

The Pitt-Johnstown Provides Food Pantry is open for students who may be struggling with food insecurity.

If you are aware of a student (resident or commuter) who may be struggling with this basic need, please inform them of this offering. Hunger is a problem on college campuses across the country

Pantry Hours:
Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday, 1 p.m.-4 p.m.
Student Union 150

The only stipulations are that students are limited to one bag per visit and a total of two visits per month. Students will complete a short intake form when using the pantry. We strive to provide full anonymity to all students who utilize the pantry and there is no proof of need required.

If you are interested in donating, the Pantry accepts the following.
