MARIA'S PLACE - CCSU Campus Pantry

The food pantry was named in loving memory of Maria A. Alvarez. Maria worked at CCSU for more than 32 years where she was loved by students, faculty and staff. Outside of work, Maria was a volunteer at the food pantry in her parish. The food pantry combines her love of students and compassion for the community.

Due to COVID 19, we have changed our pickup process. We are limiting the number of people in the food pantry to avoid unnecessary contact with others. Please limit one person per household/suite or group at a time.
