When Is The Pantry Open And Where Is It?
The Pratt Pantry is located in East Hall, room 010 on the Brooklyn campus and is open on Tuesdays 2pm-6pm and Wednesdays 1pm-6pm during the Fall semester. The Grab & Go bookshelf outside of the Pantry will be stocked for students to obtain items at their convenience.
What Do I Have To Do To Access The Pantry?
All visitors must first complete the intake form and will be asked to sign a Terms and Conditions form during their first visit. To expedite the visit, students may complete the intake form ahead of time. These forms must only be completed once per year. Returning visitors will be asked to complete a shorter form. All answers will be kept confidential and will only be used to improve operations.
The Pantry has extra bags for visitors but to help limit waste, please bring your own reusable bag.
Who Staffs The Pratt Pantry?
The Pantry is staffed by administrators and student staff members.
How Often Can I Visit The Pantry?
As often as you need. Visits are not capped and students do not have to demonstrate need in order to visit the Pantry. We ask that all visitors only take what they need and to donate in the future if they find themselves able to do so.
What Kind Of Food Is Available?
We have non-perishable food like canned goods, pasta, cereal, spreads and sauces, and snack foods. We also have produce in our fridge that differs week to week.
The Pantry also offers personal hygiene products like menstrual pads and tampons, toothbrushes, and paper goods.
Does The Pratt Pantry Provide Any Other Services?
We have staff available to help students apply for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, and to explore other ways to purchase food on a budget. Email email@example.com to learn more.
The Pantry has also started a Grab and Go system for those unable to visit the Pantry during open hours. The bookshelf outside of the Pantry will be stocked with canned goods, quick meals, snack foods, and personal hygiene items and we ask students to please be considerate of others and only take what they need.
