The Center for Intercultural Student Development is proud to sponsor the Calvin Food Insecurity Initiative

Every month (sometimes twice a month), we will host a food pantry. Students may sign up and order one of six pre-made bags. We also distribute donated meal card swipes that are collected through Swipe Out Hunger. Any Calvin student can access food bags or swipes.

How to apply

Any Calvin student can access food bags or meal card swipes. To apply, fill out our form.

Sign Up

Note: Our form is not open all the time, but typically one to two weeks prior to each food pantry date. Please check back or contact Kieychia Likely to get on our mailing list.
