Oak Tree Food Pantry

We are Nazareth's on-campus food pantry, serving students, staff, and faculty.

Need resources?

During this stressful time, the Oak Tree Pantry is here to support you.

We have a fully stocked pantry complete with all of the staples you need! You can find eggs, milk, yogurt, granola bars, pasta, peanut butter, soap, and much more on the pantry shelves. 

Nazareth community members can come to the pantry and take any five items at no cost every week

Don't need food? We can connect community members to outside resources based on a number of needs including:

  • housing 
  • food 
  • community centers 
  • transportation

Location: Colie's Cafe Kitchen, lower level of George Hall. Enter from George Residence Hall parking lot (O Lot) or through the main entrance of George Hall;  just follow the signs to Colie's Cafe.
