What is The Food Box?

In an effort to reduce food insecurity within the Winthrop community, the Department of Human Nutrition created The Food Box. The Food Box is a donation-based food pantry located in 308 Dalton Hall and it is accessible to the entire Winthrop community with no questions asked. In addition to shelf-stable food, The Food Box offers some personal care items such as toilet paper, soap, toothpaste, and feminine products, as well as a small assortment of gently-used women's clothing.

How can I use The Food Box?

The Food Box hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Anonymous appointments can be made by calling the Department of Human Nutrition: 803/323-2101.

Can I donate to The Food Box?

Yes! Donations such as food and personal care items are always welcome and may be dropped off in the box outside of the Department's main office, 302 Dalton Hall.

The Department also accepts monetary donations for The Food Box. Secure donations may be made through the Winthrop Foundation here -- select "Other" and enter fund 2032 for the gift designation. Donors may also send cash or checks to the Department of Human Nutrition:
