Food insecurity can be found anywhere—even on a college campus.

Adelphi’s Panther Pantry can help, providing vulnerable members of our community with basic food items, free of charge. The pantry addresses other needs, too, offering personal care products, clothing and household items. All are free for the asking. Just drop by the pantry or order online from our virtual menu. Either way, we’ll protect your privacy, as all pantry use is confidential.

How Can You Help?

While the pantry doesn’t accept food donations, you can help by offering financial support. We accept cash as well as checks made payable to Adelphi University, with “Panther Pantry” written on the memo line. Donations should be delivered to Carol Lucas. Employees can also donate by making a charitable gift by payroll deduction.

The pantry relies on volunteers to staff our physical location, distribute food, take orders and shelve items. If you’re interested in helping out, contact the Division of Student Affairs at 516.877.3660 or

Help us make sure that everyone in our community knows about the pantry. Tell your friends and encourage those you know who may need assistance. Pantry use is confidential because our goal is to reach as many people as possible who are in need by respecting and supporting them.
