Since the opening of the Poly Pantry in 2019, the Poly Pantry has served over 4,000 students during 15,000+ visits and distributed more than 100,000 perishable and non-perishable food, fresh produce and hygiene supplies.
The Poly Pantry is available to ALL currently enrolled CPPs students who feel they are in need. As a customer-choice pantry, students are empowered to shop for what they need and want, in order to meet their dietary needs.
The Poly Pantry would like to give a special thanks to the Alumni of the Collins College of Hospitality Management for all their support.

A Week of Groceries
It costs us about $35 to create one bag of food, fresh produce, personal hygiene and school supply items which would cover a student for one week.
Many of us may remember saving on grocery expenses in November by visiting extended family and sharing expenses, but that may not be possible for students who remain separated from their family to keep them safe. A gift at this level could keep a student from going without basic needs for one month.
Personal hygiene kits at the PolyPantry included items like toiletries, feminine hygiene products, bath soap, and shampoo. These kits cost us about $10 to assemble. So a gift at this level could provide such items to 20 students!
