What to Expect - UC Clermont Pantry

Upon arrival you will meet with the student intern or other volunteer. Please have your Bearcat card present.

If this is your first time visiting the pantry, you will be asked to fill out an intake survey. The intake survey is meant to help the UC Clermont Food Pantry understand the needs of the students it serves, as well as connect you to additional resources.

After completing the intake survey, the intern or volunteer will take you back to the pantry. You will be provided with a bag to place your items. Please take what you need. We are a free choice pantry. Please bring back the reusable bags to use for any future visits.

Our goal is for this process to be as easy, quick and confidential as possible.
