About the Wildcat Food Pantry

The Wildcat Food Pantry was created to support Linfield students who are struggling with food insecurity. The student-run pantry stocks more than 40 different kinds of non-perishable foods and various hygiene supplies. You can also find more information here about where to access community resources regarding food insecurity.


The Wildcat Food Pantry is located on the first floor of Riley Hall and is accessible by swipe to students 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

Three ways you can support our efforts

No one in our community should go to bed hungry due to lack of resources. Here are three simple ways you can help!

1) Swipe out hunger

Donate some of your meal plan swipes to fellow students in need.

2) Make a food donation

Help replenish the pantry. Food donations can be dropped in the box outside of Riley Hall 301.

3) Shop our wishlist

Anyone can select, purchase and direct-ship items from our Amazon Wishlist to help stock our shelves. This list is updated weekly to reflect our students' greatest needs. Feel free to share!
