Penguin Pantry

Our Mission

The Penguin Pantry is a collaboration with the Student Government Association and the Office of Student Outreach and Support with the goal of serving our students by providing them with basic food and hygiene necessities. By working with our community, faculty, and staff we have received a variety of donations to help serve the diverse needs of our students.

If you need access to the pantry’s services outside of these hours, no problem! Just contact Mr. Justin Shaughnessy at jashaughnessy01@student.ysu.edu or Ms. Susan Moorer at smmoorer@ysu.edu and we will work with you!
