Knights Pantry is a no-cost food pantry providing supplemental food to Bellarmine students, made possible through a partnership with Dare to Care. Students are welcome to access the pantry as many times as they need and take whatever they need. Information on use of the pantry is private and what a student takes is not tracked.
The pantry is filled with different kinds of food, varying from week to week. Our stock tends to include food like canned soups, macaroni and cheese, pasta, vegetables, rice, fruit cups, cereal and peanut butter.
