MEC/Springfield Pantry

Location & Hours

Monday – Friday 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM

MEC Campus, Room 1116.

How do I access the pantry?

To access the MEC Campus pantry, you need a referral from NOVA Cares.

Will I need to prove I’m eligible?

No. The NOVA Food Pantries do not require any documentation of need. Registered students will be asked to fill out a brief check-in with basic information, but it is not necessary to prove eligibility. The check-in form provides us with valuable data which will enhance our ability to attract support for the pantry.

Students are allowed 2 bags. You may pick out what you need.

We provide bags to carry your food items home, but you are also welcome to bring a bag of your choice if that is more comfortable for you.

To donate food to the MEC Pantry:

We accept non-perishable food items and canned/bottled beverages. Microwavable food and quick snacks are also great! Hygiene items are also needed.
