During this special time of year, alumni are invited to donate non-perishable goods to the FIU Student Food Pantry.

Where do I take my food donation during the drive?

FIU alumni can stop by the FIU Graham Center Welcome Desk (right by the front doors) to drop off all donations of non-perishable items. When dropping off, they will ask you to sign in, so we can track how many alumni stop by to contribute.

Where do I park?

To make your drop off easier, please park at the metered parking found in the Gold Garage or Lot 3. The most convenient university entrance is off SW 107 Avenue and 16 Street. You can view a campus map here.

What if I can’t make it to the Modesto Maidique campus?
