Lion’s Pantry was created by a group of faculty members and staff to address food insecurity in Penn State College of Medicine students who are learning on the campus of Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. Lion’s Pantry provides essential groceries to any student on the Hershey campus experiencing food insecurity.
Every student with a valid Penn State Health-issued student ID may access Lion’s Pantry services. This includes MD students, graduate students and physician assistant students from the College of Medicine as well as College of Nursing students working on campus. Any student who self-identifies as having food insecurity may get food from Lion’s Pantry. There is no income cutoff or proof of income required.
Students should bring their Penn State Health-issued student ID and two to three reusable shopping bags capable of holding 10 to 15 pounds each.
The pantry will ask each student for their full first name and last initial, phone number, last four digits of their Penn State ID and their student type. Everyone who uses the pantry’s services or volunteers at the pantry is expected to abide by the posted confidentiality agreement.
