The Purdue Veterinary Medicine Food Pantry regularly helps PVM family members facing food insecurity, and accepts donations directly including a limited amount of fresh and frozen items.

As impacts from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continue to ripple through society and the economy, food insecurity remains an issue for many, including people within the PVM family. Now you can easily make a difference for those in need, thanks to the PVM Food Pantry Food Drive that runs for the next two weeks. Beginning Monday, October 18, donations for the food pantry may be dropped off in Lynn Hall in the Student Services Office (Lynn 1185) and outside of Central Supply (Lynn G234) in the Purdue University Veterinary Hospital

If you prefer to participate by ordering items online, just use the food pantry’s Amazon wish list and the items will be shipped directly to Student Services.  Click here to view the wish list on Amazon.  The Food Drive officially runs through Friday, October 29.
