Mission
We recognize that poverty is often a barrier for students who are striving to obtain a certification or degree in higher education. One of the many hardships associated with poverty is food insecurity – the lack of access to enough safe and nutritious food. We believe that by alleviating food insecurity where it may exist, we empower our student community to focus on learning and discovery, thereby removing a significant barrier to persistence

History
Benny’s Pantry opened in Pocatello on January 20, 2014, as an initiative of the Student Affairs Department and was the state of Idaho’s first college or university food pantry. Additional locations were opened on the Idaho Falls campus (2016) and the Meridian campus (2019). The pantry offers free, emergency food assistance directly to the Idaho State University community. The pantry is staffed by Student Affairs staff members and student volunteers.
