Donation Guide for Move-Out

Volunteer with paper bags labeled Fight Hunger

At the end of every semester, Residence Life, the campus food pantry, and the Office of Sustainability collaborate to collect both perishable and non-perishable food items to donate within New Haven. The majority of this food will end up at the pantry on campus. Please support this effort by separating items into the appropriate bins to avoid contamination. If you have any questions about what to do with a specific item, reach out to our office at or find us on social media.
