The TTU Food Pantry was established as a resource for Tennessee Tech University students and employees in November 2012. Since then, it has served over 1,000 members of our campus community.
We are now serving more students and staff members than ever, with an average of 25 individuals signing up to receive food per week. We would like to ask our campus community to donate what they can to help support our TTU family.
Non-perishable foods and toiletries are items that you may donate at our new location: Tech Village 910 N. Willow Ave. We are in the same building as the laundry room. You can enter through the door on right side of the building. Volunteers are there Monday through Thursday from 8a.m. until 5p.m. Monetary donations can be made in the Roaden University Center, room 108.
As always, we greatly appreciate your support.

The TTU Food Pantry will open Monday, February 1st for distributions. The campus-based pantry is now located in Tech Village, 910 N. Willow Ave. Cookeville, TN 38501. We serve TTU students, faculty, staff and those working at TTU through third party employers.

The University Service Center is proud to announce its new partnership with Residential Life to see positive growth of the TTU Food Pantry. Res Life has graciously allowed the pantry to move from its current space in the cafeteria of Foundation Hall into a three bedroom apartment in Tech Village. Not only will this space allow more room to expand the pantry's services, it will also be more discreet.
The new address for the TTU Food Pantry is:
Tech Village 910 N. Willow Ave.
Building N. East, Apartment 2
Cookeville, TN 38505
We will be moving locations during winter break and anticipate reopening in early February 2016. All operations of the pantry will remain the same.

The second annual Heatin' Up the Quad hosted by the Tech Togetherness Committee was a huge success this year! Over 500 people attended the fundraiser that raised $1500 for the TTU Food Pantry. We hope you all enjoyed the chili, soup and desserts shared with us by the 19 vendors that came out.
The TTU Food Pantry group cannot thank our campus and community enough for this amazing show of support!
We are excited to announce that we're changing up the way we distribute food to our campus community. Moving away from bags prepared by volunteers, applicants will now have the opportunity to "shop" for the foods they need and want. The goal is to ensure higher satisfaction with the food applicants walk away with. This change will occur Monday, October 5, 2015.
For any questions you may have regarding this change, please contact Kaitlin Salyer at firstname.lastname@example.org or 931-372-6143.
