The Covenant Food Pantry for Graduate Students

The Covenant Food Pantry provides free food and related items to graduate students in University Circle who are facing food insecurity and in need of assistance. The Covenant Food Pantry is a welcoming and supportive project of Covenant Student Ministries and Church of the Covenant – we are here to serve everyone with no strings attached.

How the Food Pantry Works

ALL currently enrolled undergraduate, graduate, and professional students (and their families) are eligible to use the Covenant Food Pantry.

Premade food bags are available for distribution on Thursdays between 12:00 p.m. (Noon) and 5:00 p.m. at the Connection Center at Church of the Covenant, at 11205 Euclid Ave. Cleveland OH 44106. Distribution is on a first come, first served basis.

The Pantry will make all possible accommodations for dietary and religious restrictions.
