The Pantry

Shelves with food and the entrance to Cohn Hall

"We belong to each other." -Mother Teresa


Loyola manifests its effort to honor, care for, and educate the whole person by encouraging its constituents to strive after intellectual, physical, psychological, social, and spiritual health and well-being. Caring for the whole person means ensuring students have their essential needs met.


Campus Ministry, in partnership with the Division for Student Development, established Loyola’s food pantry in the fall of 2019 in order to provide non-perishable food, hygiene products, cleaning supplies, etc. to students who are experiencing food insecurity or financial need.

In a world where the cost of higher education is placing greater and greater financial strain on our students, we hope that this pantry can serve as a resource in alleviating some of that hardships our students might experience.

If you are a student seeking assistance with food insecurity and are interested in accessing our pantry, please contact Dr. Deb Cady Melzer at
