Current Oglethorpe students have the following options to use the food pantry:
- To lessen the risk of exposure and ensure the safety of students and the staff, the pantry uses an online ordering process. Students can place an order once a week and pick up their pre-bagged items at a specified location near the Food Pantry in Turner Lynch Campus Center, first level (Connected to TLCC Classroom 106, behind the game room and coffee shop.)
- In-Person use at the TLCC is not currently available due to the pandemic. We will work with you to make sure you can anonymously pick up items. Set an appointment here: Link to appointment setting
