Food Options for Current Students

To address the food scarcity issues that many college students around the country face, Kirkwood has established a Student Food Pantry on both our main campus and our regional center location in Coralville. All currently enrolled Kirkwood students are invited to receive grocery items from the Student Food Pantry once-a-week at NO cost!

Changes in Food Pantry Check-in Process

Beginning March 4, 2024, main campus will be moving the food pantry check-in station to the Student Services Check-in Desk on the 3rd Floor of Iowa Hall (near Admissions, Career Services, and Financial Aid). An increased number of students utilizing the food pantry has created long lines that have disrupted other student spaces at times. 

Reminder: students are encouraged to schedule appointments for shopping at the food pantry if they want to avoid the possibility of waiting.
