Place your 20 items in a shopping basket. When you are finished selecting your items, you will bag and weigh them.  

Preorder online

Our Express Bag option is for our students, faculty or staff who are not able to shop inside of the pantry or have a hard time getting to the pantry due to school, work or for those who are feeling under the weather. The Express Bag is our new, preselected option that will be filled with our 20 most popular items!  If you find that there is something in your bag that you do not want or doesn't fit your diet, please place those items in our yellow donations bin next to the pick-up location and it will allow us to give those items to another Roo in need. Click on this link to get started on your request: Online Order System 

Reminder: Please bring your student ID with you in order to pick up your bag. 

*PLEASE NOTE: You are only allowed to do either an online order or in-person shopping. We cannot allow for both options
