About Us

The Big Blue Pantry serves University of Kentucky students who are experiencing food insecurity or hunger. Any UK student, with a valid UK ID is eligible to receive non-perishable goods from the Big Blue Pantry by coming to the basement of White Hall, next to the Post Office, during our open hours. You may access it by stairs or elevator in White Hall, and also through the connecting tunnel from Patterson Office Tower.
