Filling Shelves to Fill Minds
Since 2015, the Alan and Cathy Hitchcock Field & Fork Pantry has assisted the members of the University of Florida campus community who experience food insecurity. The Hitchcock Field & Fork Pantry is committed to providing food to those in need, regardless of whether that need is chronic or temporary. The operation of the Hitchcock Field & Fork Pantry is made possible through donations from the campus community, local Publix supermarkets and financial contributions from dedicated supporters.
As the University of Florida continues its drive to becoming a top five public institution, it is committed to ensuring that every member of the UF community has access to nutritious foods. The second phase of the Hitchcock Field & Fork Pantry will allow visitors to not only have enough food to be successful, but also learn healthy food choices and cooking techniques.
Since its opening, the Hitchcock Field & Fork Pantry has conducted nearly 39,000 transactions. The second phase will give the Hitchcock Field & Fork Pantry even more space to display non-perishable food items and fresh produce from the Field & Fork Farm and Gardens, a dedicated area for storage and processing of donations, and a teaching and demonstration area. Please join the University of Florida for a groundbreaking ceremony celebrating the expansion of UF’s Campus Food Program. Attendees are encouraged to bring one non-perishable item to help fill the shelves!
