Located on the Lakeland campus, Polk State Pantry provides students, discreet and confidential assistance by offering food and personal hygiene items. We provide a variety of options for quick-prep items, pantry staples, and snacks. In addition to canned items and the usual non-perishables, we also maintain a selection of cereal bars, fruit cups, and fresh fruit. Depending upon donations, we also have a variety of baby items, bottled water, and frozen quick-cook items.
The shelves of the Pantry are stocked with the generous donations of staff, faculty, and students of the College, as well as a partnership with the Kidspack program. In addition to receiving products, the Pantry is able to accept monetary donations at the Cashier’s office on campus or via the link below. 100% of the donations received are used to stock the shelves with items for students.
