A2Y Supports Swoop's Food Pantry

Swoop’s Food Pantry is a student-led pantry at Eastern Michigan University that provides food assistance as well as additional resources to positively impact the well-being and success of the EMU community. Since opening on September 21, 2015, Swoop’s has had over 17,000 student visits and distributed over 320,000 pounds of food, personal hygiene items, and household goods. 

 

Students can visit the pantry as needed at no cost while working towards their degree. Due to COVID-19, Swoop’s is currently offering both an in-person socially distanced shopping experience and online ordering/grocery pickup.  

 

Swoop’s Facts

  • Swoop’s currently averages 25 visits per day (approx. 100 visits per week)
  • Swoop’s not only provides food but also hygiene items, menstrual products, school supplies, baby items, household goods, small appliances and clothing/accessories as well as loans out graduation gowns!
  • Swoop's provides a minimum of 50 Thanksgiving and 50 Holiday meal baskets annually to students who sign-up

 

With your support, Swoop's food pantry will be able to keep our shelves stocked during the pandemic with food, personal hygiene items, and household goods. Thank you for your generosity!
