Our work at the Stony Brook University Food Pantry is made possible with the generous donations of community members. Every donation is directed towards supporting members of the Stony Brook University community who are food insecure, as well as supporting the Food Pantry's operations and education efforts.

We greatly appreciate new and continued support!
