The Acorns Campus Pantry provides students with free food and personal hygiene necessities. As an extension of Health Services, it is currently located in Calvin Ulrey Hall (behind Helman Hall). However, the Acorns Campus Pantry is in the process of relocating. Currently the pantry is open by appointment only until the new location is ready and available. To create an appointment, you can email at or you can reach us by phone at 260-982-5306. The pantry restocks every week and includes, but is not limited to the following:

  • Canned and frozen food
  • Dry foods
  • Toiletries and hygiene (shampoo, menstrual products, deodorant, toothpaste, body wash, etc)
  • Living supplies (toilet paper, laundry soap, trash bags, etc)

All current Manchester students are allowed to use the pantry, whether living on or off campus and may select up to 5 items. We do not fulfill specific orders, but we will gladly accept requests or recommendations for future orders. Please know that the pantry changes its inventory regularly.

We gladly accept monetary donations or gift cards to Walmart or Dollar Tree. As mentioned previously, the inventory and the needs of our students are always changing so monetary donations provide us with the most flexibility. However, we are always in need of food and those tangible donations can be dropped of at Health Services.
