Who We Are
In partnership with Connecticut Foodshare, the Husky Harvest Food Pantries' mission is to address food insecurity across UConn. The food pantries are accessible to anyone with a UConn ID and provide the campus community with non-perishable food items, toiletries, and more. Students may browse the pantry during operational hours that vary by campus.
WHERE TO FIND US
Husky Harvest Food Pantries are open to the UConn community all across the state. Students, faculty, and staff can visit locations in Avery Point, Hartford, Stamford, Storrs, and Waterbury. Learn more about each campus location:
Locally Sourced Food
Options will vary on each campus based on what is available from Connecticut Foodshare, Midwest Food Bank New England, and what recent donations are received. Connecticut Foodshare and Midwest Food Bank New England rely on donations. Big Y in Tolland and Price Chopper in Storrs also contribute to the Storrs pantry when they have items available.
Make a Donation
Husky Harvest is 100% donation-based. If you wish to donate directly to any of the Husky Harvest Food Pantries, items to donate include non-perishable food items such as rice, pasta, cereal, condiments, mac and cheese and other canned goods. Other items such as toiletries including soap, shampoo and laundry detergent may also be donated.
Please do not donate any open, partially used or expired items.
