Swoop's Student Food Pantry is a campus-based organization that is run by a leadership board consisting of EMU faculty, staff, students and alumni volunteers.

Our mission is to provide the EMU Community with food assistance and additional resources to positively impact their well-being and college success. Our goals are to:

  • Create a sustainable resource for students to temporarily help meet food needs of students on campus
  • To meet emergency, non-food needs of students
  • Distribute food discreetly in easily accessible and safe environments on-campus
  • To provide students with additional resources to assist them in accessing services in the area
  • To involve additional resources and community partners to assure the sustainability of the pantry


Everyone needs a little help sometimes! If you're a current EMU student then you're eligible to use the food pantry. To get started, visit our Using Swoop's Pantry page and complete the Intake Form.
