McAnulty Food Pantry

An extension of the Center for Migration, Displacement, and Community Studies, this project provides food and other needs for students, faculty, and staff at Duquesne University. Out of the McAnulty College of Liberal Arts, the Migration Club strives to combat food insecurity in our local campus community with the McAnulty Food Pantry. Through the organization of food drives and the assistance of local partners, including The Pittsburgh Food Bank, the pantry is an expression of the entire community here at Duquesne as we help one another flourish. 

"The Pantry's presence is essential to our community. I've spoken to so many graduate students who are grateful the Pantry exists within the College in such an accessible and friendly way."

Food scarcity negatively impacts every dimension of one's health, and the stress of not having an accessible source of food is detrimental to not only the livelihood of those in need, but also to the community at large. Food is also an intimate expression of our personhood, encompassing our identities, our cultures, and our humanity. It is our goal to address these issues and to open up a dialogue to discuss them openly, without judgment. 
Join the Migration Club in combating food insecurity at Duquesne with our on-campus food pantry!

Acknowledging the present stigma surrounding food scarcity, a reasonable concern one may have is the degree of privacy provided in accessing the pantry. Unfortunately, due to the location of the pantry, we cannot guarantee complete anonymity, yet there are still measures we can provide to help ease this tension. Rest assured that all interactions with the pantry directly will be kept confidential. Contact the migration club for private access to the pantry outside the open hours.
We know that for many students, food insecurity has a negative impact on their physical and mental health and creates an obstacle to academic and personal success. We also know that for many of us this situation worsened with the pandemic. Our pantry will not only provide high quality food for members of the Duquesne community, but will also help raise awareness and facilitate conversation around this serious issue.
