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, faculty, or staff member who are in need of services. We are located in McGehee Hall, Room 109.

Hours of Operation:

Monday and Tuesday: 9-11am 

Wednesday and Thursday: 2-4pm

Fridays: 10am-12pm

*Appointments are no longer accepted.

Thanksgiving Break Hours

Current Southeastern students, faculty, and staff members 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.
