Little Free Pantry at Luther College

Take what you need. Give what you can.

The Little Free Pantry @ Luther College is a resource on campus that provides the Luther community free access to food staples and hygiene products. The LFP is available 24/7 in the Meditation Chapel at the back of the Center for Faith and Life. A satellite LFP is also available in the Union, in the lounge outside the bookstore.

If there is a problem with the LFP, please contact the College Ministries office at [email protected] or (563) 387-1040.

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for donation updates, cafeteria hours, and more!

Donations are always welcomed and encouraged. Donation boxes are available in the CFL Meditation Chapel and by welcome desks in most residence halls. Monetary donations should be brought to the College Ministries office.

We cannot accept medications, alcohol or tobacco products, shaving razors or other sharps, or expired/opened packages due to safety concerns. Thank you for your cooperation.
