Consistent access to food is a necessary part of being a successful, healthy student. Should you experience an unanticipated hardship or emergency, we can help connect you to groceries.
Blue Table is a food pantry for enrolled UB students who do not have access to food as a result of an emergency. The program is available to off-set unanticipated hardship and short-term food insecurity and is not meant to replace a meal plan or be a means of consistent grocery access.
Students who use Blue Table follow three easy steps:
1. Complete a Blue Table intake
2. Meet with a Blue Table Coordinator
3. Visit Blue Table in the Student Union
Blue Table exists through the generous support of the UB and Buffalo community. Donated food and funds sustain Blue Table and help keep students healthy and safe. Whether you are working with a specific population of students, faculty or staff, within an office or department, or within the Buffalo community, food drives can bring a group or team together to support students.
Food Bank of WNY provides support to the community at a variety of locations in Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie and Niagara Counties.
