Hours & Contact
Curbside & Rapid Pick-Up

We're excited to offer online ordering through The Pantry app, available for download in the Apple and Android stores. You can find them by searching “JMU Pantry” or clicking the links above. You can elect a curbside pickup option or a rapid pickup option in The Pantry itself. Details on order pickups can be found in the FAQ section of the app.


The Pantry is a joint effort on campus, supported by the Basic Needs Advisory Board, co-chaired by Off-Campus Life and Community Service-Learning staff, and university and Harrisonburg community partners. The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank ensures we have a consistent supply of quality, nutritious food options. The Pantry is stocked with shelf-stable goods, some hygiene products, a limited selection of fresh produce from JMU Dining Services each week, as well as fresh bread. Options continue to grow and expand as we understand the needs of our community.

We are open to all JMU students, no questions asked.


The Pantry is currently accepting donations for hygiene products and basic school supplies. Additionally, we welcome food items that have been requested but are not currently available through the food bank, including oil and vinegar options, spices and herbs, basic baking items, and shelf-stable (non-refrigerated) soy and almond milk. View our most requested items.

To arrange a drop-off of donated supplies, please email us at or call (540) 568-6071.

This project is also generously funded by monetary donations from JMU Dukes past and present, as well as community members. Donate here.

Additional Resources

Student Support Hub

The Student Support Hub houses information about campus and community resources that can help students meet their basic needs. The hub will continually be updated as we learn about more existing resources and more resources are created.

Meal Vouchers

JMU Dining Services has partnered with The Pantry to provide meal vouchers to distribute to food insecure students that need to eat a meal at a campus dining facility. If you need a voucher because you are experiencing food insecurity, complete this Meal Voucher Request Form, and someone from The Pantry will contact you regarding your request. Not all students who request meal vouchers will receive them due to the limited supply of vouchers.

Campus Microwaves

There are microwaves available for student use in the following areas of campus: 

  • The Kitchen in the lower level of Festival
  • Taylor Down Under (TDU)
  • Near the Bistro (patio side) in Student Success Center

JMU Career Clothes Closet

Hosted and organized by the University Career Center and The Pantry, the JMU Career Clothes Closet is a clothing and accessory resource for all JMU students, specifically focusing on work and interview attire.

No exceptions, no questions asked.
