Lift Up Vikes! Food Resource Center & Food Pantry



Nationally, 36% of college students are struggling to meet basic needs.


"I found LUVikes! during the start of my year through a booth at orientation. I was having a rough week at that start, and I actually didn't have anything to eat at home at the time. LUVikes! could not have come at a better time."

Every dollar counts!

Lift Up Vikes! is supported by  the generosity of donors. Tax dollars are NOT used to purchase food or other basic needs for students.


Your support of the Lift Up Vikes! Resource Center & Food Pantry will provide food and other basic needs for students facing food and housing insecurity. Our pantry needs 5,000 pounds of food each month to meet demand, and every dollar makes a difference.

    $1000 …    5,000 lbs   FILLS THE PANTRY FOR A MONTH!
    $500   …    2,500 lbs
    $250  …     1,250 lbs
    $100 …         500 lbs
    $ 50 …          250 lbs


What is food insecurity? Food Insecurity means being without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. Food insecure students frequently have to choose between food or textbooks, food or rent, and food or medicine.


Thank you for your support!
