How to Support the Pantry

Hendricks Chapel relies on the generous donations from the Syracuse University community to stock the food pantry.  Ways to support the food pantry include: 

  • Donating food or personal care items.  Physical donations may be dropped off at the Hendricks Chapel Dean's Suite. Items may also be ordered through our Amazon Wish List, which ships items directly to the pantry. All are encouraged to donate to the Food Pantry Support Fund.
  • Holding a food and toiletry drive.  Student groups, residence hall floors, offices and departments can hold a food and toiletry drive to benefit the food pantry. Reach out to Syeisha Byrd to learn how you can "Adopt-A-Month" for the pantry!
  • Volunteer at the food pantry.  Volunteers are needed to stock and organize the pantry, assist with fresh produce deliveries on Fridays, and answer questions for vistors.  To volunteer, please contact Syeisha Byrd, 315.443.1254 or
  • Resource Guide for further student assistance.
