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 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.

Operation

The health and safety of our clients and volunteers is our top priority. In accordance with University policy, a mask must be worn when in the pantry and six feet of social distance must be maintained at all times. We have increased the frequency of cleaning, as well as requiring volunteers to wear gloves during their shifts. 

Online Ordering

Due to our limited space, and in order to do our part to ensure a safe environment for all, Billiken Bounty will be shifting to an online ordering model until further notice. Clients will fill out a Google form indicating items that they need and will self-select when they will pick up their order. Volunteers will then package their order and label it for pick up.

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."
