On Monday, January 29, Campus Ministry is launching a food pantry in Old Main 209 (in the hallway leading toward Churchill Tower) as part of an initiative to ensure that all members of the Canisius community have access to the resources they need. The pantry is unlocked during business hours for anyone who needs to come in for food. Furthermore, there is a “no questions asked” policy in effect regarding an individual’s personal need for the items.

We are currently accepting donations of nonperishable, unopened food items as well as meal cards (gift certificates to restaurants, grocery stores, etc.) for the campus ministers to hand out at their discretion. Please bring donations to Old Main 209 and leave the items on the shelf. We especially need donations of items high in protein (such as beans, canned tuna or chicken, nuts, etc.). Thank you in advance for your kindness and consideration! If you have any questions, contact Darby Ratliff in Campus Ministry at Ext. 2875 or at
