The CU Denver Student Life Office has collaborated with the experiential Learning Center to launch the CU Denver Food Pantry.
Currently, the pantry features a variety of food items with a wide range of food including snacks, lunch items and ingredients to cook a full meal! Some hygienic items may also be available.
ALL CU DENVER STUDENTS ARE WELCOME!!! In order to utilize the food pantry, students must present a current CU Denver Student ID Card. Students will be allowed to take a limited number of items per week. These items are available at no cost to the student. Item availability may vary from week to week.
If you know of a student that is in need of food, please refer him/her to the food panty in Tivoli 260. For more information, please contact the Experiential Learning Center at 303-556-6656, or the Office of Student Life at at 303-356-3399. Questions/concerns can also be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

We are always in need of help! You can help by donating items or volunteering for the food bank of the Rockies! Please contact us for more information.
Food Bank of the Rockies (FBR) has officially approved the CU Denver Food Pantry as a member agency, so we can begin accumulating food credit in exchange for volunteer hours. Volunteers will need to commit to a 3-hour shift and mention CU Denver’s Volunteers in Partnership (VIP)program when they sign up. Those interested will need to look at FBR’s availability calendar and fill out an online volunteer request form. These materials can be found at the following link:

How it works:
For every three hours of volunteer time (donated in increments of three or more hours) a volunteer completes, his/her designated agency will receive a 20-pound food credit, automatically applied to the next month’s statement for the agency.
Getting Started: To earn VIP credit for CU Denver, you will need to fill out the online volunteer request form at foodbankrockies.org
. The FBR volunteer staff will contact you to schedule shift(s). At that time, you need to notify them that you are requesting CU Denver VIP credit. Please note that ALL volunteer time MUST be scheduled. VIP and general volunteer guidelines will be explained prior to the scheduled volunteer shift.
