The Knights Table Food Pantry
In fall 2018, Queens College continued its commitment to address food insecurity among students by opening the Knights Table Food Pantry. Food insecurity affects individuals and families whose eating patterns are disrupted due to limited availability of fresh, healthy food items or a decline in the amount or variety of food intake. Food insecurity can be a significant yet solvable obstacle to academic success. The Knights Table Pantry provides matriculated QC students who are experiencing food insecurity with access to non-perishable food items for themselves and immediate family members.
If you know of students who may be experiencing food insecurity, please encourage them to email KnightsTable@qc.cuny.edu or call 718-997-3977 for quick access to the pantry.
If you would like to contribute to the Knights Table Food Pantry by donating nonperishable food items or by volunteering your time, please contact us using the same email address or telephone number. Thank you!
Who is eligible?
Queens College matriculated students enrolled in courses during the academic year are eligible to use the Knights Table Food Pantry.
What is available from the Knights Table Food Pantry?
The Knights Pantry provides free food and related items to students who face food insecurity and are in need of assistance. The pantry offers supplemental support; we do not offer all of the food students need, but strive to support them as best we can. As additional support for eligible students, we also provide Green and QC Bucks.

How can I volunteer at the Knights Table Food Pantry?
