Bob's Basket


The Creation: Bob's Basket was started in the spring of 2021 by a group of students studying food insecurity on campus. The pantry was so popular that it carried into the fall semester and became an official student resource in the spring of 2022.

Bob's Basket is an on-campus food and necessities pantry that makes food and hygiene items available to all Blue Raiders. The goal of the pantry is to supplement student needs when existing resources cannot, and to make necessities available and accessible on campus.
