Food Pantry

Pantry Banner

The Southeastern Lion Pantry is operated by the Office for Student Engagement with
the help of student workers and volunteers. The mission of the Lion Pantry is to provide
perishable and non-perishable items to any active Southeastern student who are in
need of services. We are located in McGehee Hall, Room 109.


*Appointments are no longer accepted

Current Southeastern students must present their Southeastern ID and may visit the
pantry twice each week. During each visit, persons may obtain ten items, with a maximum
of twenty items each week. Of these items, no more than three of the same item may
be selected. Certain items, such as milk, bread, and toiletries, have limited quantities
for each visit.
