LMU Food Pantry
April 07, 2017

"The LMU Food Pantry was established in 2017 to serve as a resource for students struggling to access and secure food as a result of financial challenges.  The LMU Food Pantry operates on the honor system and allows students to confidentially enter a space and take the food that they need.

This pantry is made possible through the generous support of our sponsors, LMU community and friends of the pantry, including alumni.  We thank you for your support.


The mission of the LMU Food Pantry is to provide free food to any LMU student who may experience hunger or food insecurity due to financial hardships.


Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday: 10AM-5PM

Wednesday: 10AM-7PM


The food pantry is located adjacent to St. Robert’s Annex, the former location of the University Credit Union.  There is a burgundy, blue and white sign on the door that reads “LMU Food Pantry:  Student Community Food Resources”.

XOXO to Sodexo – For Taking a Stand for Millions of Hens

Today, with Sodexo, we are announcing that the giant food service company has committed, over the next five years, to switch all 20 million pounds of its liquid eggs to cage-free. The company manages dining operations at thousands of colleges, universities, hospitals, and corporate dining centers across the country. Due to its enormous size, this will remove 750,000 hens from battery cages per year and put them into cage-free settings. This announcement comes after prior announcements from the company to switch to cage-free for its 39 million shell eggs – which provides a better living for an additional 150,000 birds.
