Food Pantry

Overview

The Feed-A-Bull Food Pantry is a campus food pantry initiative spearheaded by the Center for Student Well-being, the Office of Student Outreach and Support (SOS) and Feeding America Tampa Bay. Feed-A-Bull is available to enrolled USF students on the USF Tampa campus and was created to address food insecurity by providing supplemental food to students in need, as well as education and resources to students related to purchasing and preparing balanced food on a budget.

Feed-A-Bull will strive to alleviate food hardship and hunger among USF students by providing supplemental food, nutrition education and resources to students in need, in order to promote student success and retention. Feed-A-Bull was created as a response to the recognition that some USF students may face food insecurity while attending a university, and supplemental food assistance may assist in allowing USF students to focus on their studies. By providing emergency food assistance, Feed-A-Bull works to make sure that USF students would not have to choose between buying text books or buying groceries, and ensure that no USF student will go hungry.

By providing access to Feed-A-Bull, organizers would like to decrease food insecurity at USF in order to promote academic success, student retention and personal wellbeing, and to increase student access to resources and support. Year round monetary and food donations will be accepted. Non-perishable food items can be donated at multiple campus locations, including the Office of Student Outreach and Support (SVC 2058) and monetary donations will be accepted by clicking on the "Make a Donation" tab below. For questions or further information, please contact Feed-A-Bull at feedabull@usf.edu or 813-974-6130.
