Using Swoop's Pantry

To shop at the pantry, all students must be currently enrolled at Eastern Michigan University and are required to show their current class schedule . Students can receive food twice a month.

Students can access the pantry a third time during the month if an emergency occurs.

How to get started using the pantry

Complete the Intake Form ahead of time or in the pantry during your first visit.

How-To Guide

  1. Make sure you're registered for the current or upcoming term.
  2. Fill out our Intake Form. Once filled out you are able to shop in the pantry, no need to wait for confirmations or responses. This is a confidential survey to gain information to better serve the needs of our shoppers.
  3. Come to 104 Pierce Hall during our hours to shop (we'll provide you with a  bag but you're welcome to bring your own). Make sure you bring your E-ID and a copy of your week-at-a-glance class schedule.  Printed and electronic class schedule copies from smart phones are both acceptable.
  4. If our door is closed during normal operating hours, knock or ring our door bell. After notifying a team member of your presence, have a seat in our waiting room across the hall or visit our garden outside until it's your turn to shop.

Note: Please note students are not allowed to pick up food for other students.
