Support Tiger Pantry

Tiger Pantry is entirely reliant on donations from our campus and surrounding communities to support UofM students. We are thankful to our campus and community partners and donors who allow us to support our Tiger family!

Financial Support

Financial support allows the Tiger Pantry to continue our everyday operations. As a donor, your support will go toward the following activities to expand our capacity to feed students in need at the UofM:

  • Regular food deliveries from our partners at the Mid-South Food Bank
  • Filling the gaps on our shelves when necessary
  • Educational campus programming aimed at raising awareness of Tiger Pantry and destigmatizing food insecurity

Just a $5 monthly donation can be utilized to purchase over 200 lbs. of food and products for the Tiger Pantry! As we are Driven by Doing to make a difference, please consider helping our Tiger family with a monthly or one-time donation TODAY!
