Food4Flyers Food Pantry

Food4Flyers Food Pantry

In an effort to reduce food insecurity among students in the UD community, the Brook Center and the Dean of Students office have collaborated on the creation of the Food4Flyers Food Pantry.  University of Dayton students are encouraged to take up to 10 items once per week. 

Graduate students are encouraged to use the pantry as well but we ask that international students in need contact Divya Blakemore at and domestic students in need contact Kristen Keen at before dropping by the pantry. They will have a brief conversation to explore whether Food4Flyers is the best fit, or if we should explore other options, such as the Dayton Foodbank, Good Neighbor House, etc. 

Located in The Brook Center at ArtStreet, the Food4Flyers Food Pantry is available during the following times when class is in session:

  • Monday and Tuesdays: 6-8pm
  • Wednesday: 9-11am
  • Thursday and Friday: 2-4pm
  • By appointments - Please email the Brook Center at


If you'd like to make a physical donation, please do so by dropping items off at the Brook Center O office. Other donations can be made here.
