Support-a-Bull Food Pantry
Support-A-Bull Pantry is a USF Sarasota-Manatee campus food pantry supported by All Faiths Food Bank. The pantry is available to students at the USF Sarasota-Manatee campus to address food insecurity by providing supplemental food and toiletry items to students in need. The confidential pantry was created to alleviate food hardship and hunger among all enrolled USF students by providing supplemental food, nutrition education and resources to any student in need -- whatever their situation -- in order to ensure their academic success at USF.
