The mission of the LSU Food Pantry is to provide supplemental food to students in need who may experience hunger or food insecurity.
Food insecurity is a prevalent, but mostly unaddressed, issue on college campuses nationwide, including at LSU. Some students may experience situational hunger or food insecurity while others may demonstrate chronic hunger or insecurity and need for continued support. Regardless of the circumstance, no students should have to choose between food and other basic needs. The Food Pantry exists to help ease that choice and provide support.
