Lumberjack Food Pantry

Student Outreach and Support

The primary purpose of the Lumberjack Food Pantry is to lead the way in the reduction of food insecurity on the SFA campus. We identify and raise awareness of campus-specific needs and collaborate with campus departments and student organizations. 


Current SFA students are eligible to receive food distribution. Students who live off campus are eligible to receive two boxes of food per month, while students who live on campus may receive one box of food per month.
