Food Support

A student fills a Blue Table Food Pantry order.

Consistent access to nutritious food is a necessary part of being a successful, healthy student. Should you experience an unanticipated hardship, we can help connect you to groceries.

Blue Table - Campus Support

Through a partnership with the Student Association, UB offers Blue Table, a virtual food pantry service for UB students who do not have access to food. There are two easy steps:

  1. Place an online order
  2. Pick up orders in 230 Student Union

Any enrolled UB student is welcome to utilize the service and all that is needed is a valid UB student ID. Blue Table is available to off-set unanticipated hardship and is not meant to replace a meal plan.

Place an Order

Students interested in Blue Table should complete an online order form, which includes a list of diverse and healthy food options. Once the order is received, the groceries will be bagged and available for pick up in 230 Student Union on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. in 230 Student Union. 

U. Heights Pantry

The University Presbyterian Church (UPC) Food Pantry across the street from the South Campus provides food items for students and residents who are in need. Shelves are stocked with a variety of non-perishable food items and basic necessities.

Hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12 p.m. - 4 p.m.
