The Food Pantry offers healthy food selections to all current Farmingdale State College community members experiencing hunger, and is a judgment-free place for community members in need of assistance. The aid received from the Food Pantry is not a long-term fix but a bi-weekly resource for food insecurity.
If a Farmingdale State College Community member needs more long-term assistance, see the list of local resources below.
All personal information regarding the food recipients will be kept confidential.

Understanding Food Insecurity
What is food insecurity? Food insecurity is a lack of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life. It is important to note that though hunger and food insecurity are closely related, they are two distinct concepts. Hunger refers to a personal, physical sensation of discomfort, while food insecurity refers to a lack of available financial resources for food at the household level. - Feeding America
