The Beyond Food Program strictly relies on donations to keep in stock non-perishable items to provide to FAU students in need. Below is a list of recommended shelf-stable food items to donate. These items and their non-brand counterparts will allow for a substantive 3-day emergency supply of food to be provided.

Food items include “meals in a can” that are microwaveable or have easy-open pop lids.

Donations may be dropped off during regular business hours to the Weppner Center for LEAD & Service-Learning in the Student Union, Room 206. We are happy to work with any student organization, office, department or community group who would like guidance on hosting a food drive for FAU’s Beyond Food program. Please contact us at (561)297-3607.

Note: For safety reasons, we cannot redistribute homemade products, open food items or any items requiring refrigeration.
