Mobile Pantry

Attention Students

The Mobile Pantry bus will not be coming to campus in its typical fashion at this time. However, if you are in need of food please contact and our counselors can help. While campus remains open we will provide per-packaged bags of non-perishable food items to students in need. The bags can be picked up in the Welcome Center in the College Center building between the hours of 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. Monday-Thursday while supplies remain.

The Mobile Pantry is available to Inver Hills students who need food for themselves or their families. No income requirements or residency restrictions apply. No Appointment or pre-registration needed. Food is available on a first come first serve basis. Open to ALL Inver Hills Students.

The Mobile Pantry is on campus most Wednesday afternoons and is located in the roundabout behind the Liberal Arts Building.

You can shop and select foods for you and your family. Seventy percent of the foods available are perishable and wholesome, including:

  • Milk and other dairy products
  • Eggs
  • Meat
  • Chicken
  • Fish
