Lift Up Vikes! Resource Center and Food Pantry

Connecting CSU Students to Resources that Supplement Nutrition and Basic Human Needs

Help Us Lift Up Vikes!

Join us us in supporting the Lift Up Vikes! Resource Center & Food Pantry as we strive to make a significant impact on the lives of our students in 2023. This year alone, we've provided essential resources to an incredible 7,246 students, making a difference in their education and well-being.

Feeding minds, Nourishing Futures: Our commitment to combating student hunger is reflected in the astounding 100,969.1 pounds (approximately 50 tons) of food distributed in 2023. However, the journey does not end here. We need your support to continue this crucial work and address the diverse needs of our student community.

Beyond Basics: Hygiene and More: While food sustains the body, hygiene products are essential for maintaining dignity and confidence. Our biggest area of need includes feminine hygiene products and infant care items like baby wipes, pull-ups, and diapers above size 4. Your contribution will help us provide not just sustenance but also essential items that foster a sense of well-being.

College Student-Friendly Food Options: College life is demanding, and convenient, nutritious food is key to success. We are seeking your support to enhance our pantry with college student friendly options such as snacks, microwaveable meals, and granola bars. Your contribution will directly impact students' ability to focus on their studies without the worry of an empty stomach. 

Thanks to our partnership with the Great Cleveland Food Bank, every dollar you donate allows us to purchase 3 meals worth of food for our students. Your generosity multiplies the impact, ensuring that even a small donation goes a long way in alleviating hunger and supporting educational successes. 

Together, we can Lift Up Vikes!: Join us in creating a supportive and nourishing environment for our students. Your contribution, no matter the size, makes a tangible difference in the lives of those striving for a bright future.
