Stock the Ole Miss Food Bank


When the COVID-19 pandemic made it necessary to switch from classroom to remote instruction, more than 200 University of Mississippi students had to remain in campus residence halls and many more graduate and undergraduate students sheltered in their Oxford apartments due to travel restrictions, internet needs, and safe housing needs.

For many of these students, this continues to be a time of great financial uncertainty. They are now relying solely on the Ole Miss Food Bank for food and are expected to continue to do so until their assistantships and on-campus and off-campus jobs return.

Since shifting to remote learning and mission-critical operations, the Food Bank has distributed more than 6,000 pounds of food to students. Before the pandemic, the demand was significantly less.

Due to social distancing guidelines, the Food Bank is now using Google Docs for online-only orders for take-out bags. These orders are filled by a small group of faculty and staff volunteers, and students are able to pick up their orders at designated times. Bags also are available at any time outside the Ole Miss Food Bank entrance at Room 213, Kinard Hall, and the bags are restocked Monday through Friday as the Food Bank’s current inventory allows. Due to high demand, a limited variety of items can be offered in the bags.

The need for food and other items has become more urgent than ever. The Ole Miss Food Bank, founded in 2012, has established a commitment to foster a healthy college community by providing nourishing food. The Food Bank can operate only with the generous support of its volunteers and donors.

You can help alleviate hunger among students and others still on campus and in Oxford who need our support now. Please consider making a gift today. Thank you!

Help Students Succeed

According to a 2016 study by the College and University Food Bank Alliance , students who experience food insecurity are negatively impacted academically and reported choosing not to purchase a required textbook, missing class and dropping


Address Urgent Needs

On the University of Mississippi campus, a 2017 Honors thesis by K.L. Halfacre found that 46.1% of students were food insecure and 24.7% experienced low food insecurity. These needs have compounded in the wake of COVID-19. Your gift eases the burden of food insecurity felt by so many in our community.


Radically Increased Demand

This year, the Ole Miss Food Bank distributed over 4,100 meals-- an unprecedented increase in a vital need on campus. Your support allows us to meet the increased demand for adequate nutrition and other basic needs.
