Unfortunately, due to precautions taken against the spread of COVID-19, the pop-up pantries will be suspended until further notice. If you need any financial or food assistance, please reach out to cua-service@cua.edu to schedule an appointment to pick up a bag of food or meet with one of the staff members. We will try to help you in any way we can.

The Pop-Up Food Pantry is an initiative to provide assistance to those of the University community—students, staff and faculty—who may be facing food insecurity issues. The Pop-Up Food Pantry offers non-perishable food items, toiletries and feminine hygiene products.
