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 Dean of Students Office, Bldg. 8, Rm 226. 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)297-3542.

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