Hours may vary during breaks and vacations, visit our Instagram for daily updates.

Please note that the Oakhurst Campus Food Pantry is staffed by a small, but mighty, group of staff, students, and volunteers. While we will do our very best to be open during the times listed, there will be occasions when schedules have to change at the last minute (due to illness, weather, child care, etc.). If you plan to visit during normal office hours (typically, M-F, 8-4:30), and the Pantry is closed, please visit the office upstairs through the main door at 102 Bedford Street and they will assist you in accessing the resource. We apologize for any inconvenience.
