Did you know that nearly 25% of college students experience food insecurity? The Dean of Students is proud to offer the Campus Food Pantry, located within the Woodbury Campus Center on the Portland campus. This pantry is open to all community members. We stock foods that are easy to eat between classes and items that can be prepared at home.

*From November 26 through December 31, University Credit Union is shining a light on the food pantries that help those within our campus communities. Across the state, there are eight UMS-based food pantries that need support. These campus food pantries help students, employees and others in the campus community. Support the USM food pantry by donating through UCU! UCU is matching donations up to $25,000.
