Raider Pantry

Welcome to the Raider Pantry

The purpose of the Raider Pantry is to provide supplemental food and other necessities to students who need assistance.

Hours & Eligibility

The pantry will operate by student request except for our bi-monthly “Grab What You Need” events held the second and fourth Wednesday of the month in Building 410. During the “Grab What You Need,” students may choose from already preselected items.

To be eligible for services, you must be a currently enrolled student. Please bring your Student ID every time you visit the pantry. Without your ID, we will be unable to serve you.

How to Use the Pantry

Each time you visit the pantry you will be asked to check in at the Student Government Office. An SGA representative will assist you in obtaining the items that you need.

You may also choose to complete the online request form during which a Raider Pantry volunteer will pull the requested items in advance and have them available for pick-up. For online applicants, it may take up to 48 hours to approve and fill your order. The online application also allows you to designate a trusted college employee to pick-up the order on your behalf. Raider Pantry volunteers will simply verify with the employee that they have been selected to obtain the items at the request of the student.

All first time users of the pantry who complete the online application may access the form here. For returning users of the pantry you will be required to complete the Returning User Form which may be accessed here.

Food Type & Availability

We receive most of our food and other necessities from donations. Products offered are dependent on availability and we aim to provide as much variety as possible.

Please only take the items you will actually use, so that there is plenty for everyone.

Questions & Contact Information

If you have any questions, or if you are interested in volunteering, please email [email protected], call (850) 729-5348, or visit the pantry and speak to one of our volunteers in person.

The pantry is located inside the Raider Life center, in building 410, room 102 on the Niceville main campus.
