The Store was founded on the principles of faith, trust, and respect, and these values guide our work every day. Our mission is to address student need at GW by offering food and other resources to ensure that every student has the opportunity to succeed.
About The Store
Founded in 2017 and managed by The Store student organization and the Division for Student Affairs, The Store is a student-run food pantry at the George Washington University that provides resources and support for students living with food insecurity.
GW Students will need to sign up for access to The Store using a GW UserID and password. Shoppers will remain completely anonymous out of respect for their privacy, and we will not receive the names of anybody who signs up for The Store. We have faith that every shopper who requests access needs this resource, and trust them to take what they need and leave enough for other shoppers.
Once gaining access, shoppers enter the pantry by using their GWorld cards to tap into The Store. Shoppers are free to choose from a variety of items that meet their needs. To comply with GW’s Single Use Plastics Policy, please bring a reusable shopping bag for your items.
The Store is stocked with non-perishables (canned vegetables, pasta, rice, peanut butter, oatmeal, etc.) on an on-going basis. It is also stocked with dairy, produce, vegetables, fruit, and meats 2-3 times a week during the academic year. The Store is closed during re-stocking. We will contact registered Store shoppers via social media once The Store has been stocked and it has been re-opened for shopping. The Store is typically closed during stocking to allow Store managers to clean and organize products.
The Store offers a variety of selections, including nonperishables, perishables, and assorted non-food items.
Vegan and gluten free options
Milk (dairy and non-dairy)
Dairy products (eggs, yogurt, cheeses, butter)
