As of the summer of 2022, the Graduate Student Council (GSC) is piloting a pantry program as another mechanism to address food insecurity among graduate students.
The pantry is located in the Graduate Student Lounge (92 Thayer St.), in cabinets three and four which are to the right of the GSL entrance, and directly across from the sink. Please note that for both cabinets, to open the door on the left you must press a lever on the back of the door which is only accessible by opening the door on the right first.
A list of items that might be found in the pantry and where are shown below. Please note that the inventory and the pantry program as a whole is a work in progress and encourage anyone who has feedback regarding the offerings or accessibility to fill out this anonymous form which we have also included at the bottom of this page.
If you are interested in helping the GSC address food insecurity among graduate students, please reach out to the Chair of Student Life: GSC_StudentLife@brown.edu
