University of Montana Lend-a-Paw Pantry

32 Campus Dr - University Center, Room 119, Missoula MT 59812

The purpose of the UM Food Pantry is to support University of Montana students facing food insecurity.

The UM Food Pantry first opened its doors in February of 2019 in response to findings from a student-led Committee on Basic Needs Insecurity. The UM Food Pantry works with ASUM and other student-led groups on campus to provide services, education, and outreach. The UM Food Pantry also partners with Missoula Food Bank & Community Center, Montana Food Bank Network, Missoula Chamber of Commerce, and others in the community to organize food & donation drives, events, and fundraising campaigns.
