The Wesleyan Resource Center has set up a temporary pantry, which is open to any student in need. The pantry will be open for the duration of the spring semester.

The Wesleyan Resource Center is collecting food and other items to support low-income and food-insecure students who continue to reside on campus during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The center will be open seven days a week. Items can be dropped off or picked up between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and noon to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

Suggested donations include:

  • Pasta kits (microwaveable mac and cheese, rice meals, ramen, etc.)
  • Canned food with pull tabs (vegetables, beans, pasta, etc.)
  • Food in sealed individual serving cups (applesauce, vegetables, fruits)
  • Toiletries (shampoo, body wash, soap, mouthwash, tissues)
  • Cleaning supplies (disinfecting products, paper towels, dish soap, sponges)
  • Candy, chips, snacks
  • Kitchenware (pots and pans, cookware, cooking utensils, cups)

For those who would like to donate and are sheltering in place or residing off campus, products can be purchased online and delivered to the Resource Center at 167 High Street, Middletown, CT 06459.
