Billiken Bounty Food Pantry

The mission of Billiken Bounty is to provide a sustainable on-campus resource to help alleviate food insecurity among Saint Louis University students. The project is guided by the values of privacy, professionalism, respect and dignity. 

Billiken Bounty Food Pantry

In partnership with the Center for Social Action and the Dean of Students Office, and in the name of cura personalis, SLU student leaders have created a structure for a safe place to obtain groceries, where Saint Louis University students can choose from a variety of healthy foods to attain food security. The pantry also serves as a catalyst of positive change for SLU students by providing information and connection to other local and campus resources for personal and academic success.

It's honestly a major stress reliever since I am an international student and I have a lot of other expenses to take care of. This really helps me manage my funds better and have well balanced meals."
