Support-a-Bull Food Pantry

Support-A-Bull Food Pantry is a USF Sarasota-Manatee campus food pantry sponsored by the Student Government Association and All Faiths Food Bank. The food pantry is available to students currently enrolled on the USF Sarasota-Manatee campus to address food insecurity by providing supplemental food to students in need. The food pantry was created as a response to the knowledge that some USF students face food insecurity while attending the university, and supplemental food assistance may assist in allowing students to focus on their studies.
