Gulf Park Pantry

Request a Bag

The Gulf Park Pantry is a free resource for USM students, faculty, and staff. The pantry distributes pre-packaged bags of food and hygiene items. Individuals can specify special needs and requests including allergy information, household size and ages, and personal needs. The Gulf Park Pantry tries hard to customize bags according to individual needs.

To request a bag, simply fill out our online form and specify a pick up time.

Items Needed List

Add us to your shopping list

If you need it from the store, chances are we do too! Next time you're at the store, pick up an extra box of cereal or package of toilet paper and donate it to the pantry. We are always in need of pantry and bathroom staples. Buy extra of the things on sale this week!

Pick up a little extra

A lot of the things we buy come in value packs. When you need deodorant, buy the value pack and donate the extras to the pantry! When you snag a good deal on a giant pack of paper towels, send a few our way. Have a big box of laundry or dishwasher pods? Put a few in a plastic bag for the pantry. 

Office Events

Sometimes we end up with extra condiment packages and individually wrapped snacks and utensils. We can use it! Save the unopened packages for us.


Who doesn't love those mini bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and soap? When your drawers are overflowing with mini bottles, remember that we would love to add those to our bags for students!

Donations are accepted anytime in Hardy Hall 242. Or, give us a call at 228-214-3341.

There have been so many people who were instrumental to our success. We are compiling a complete history. Check back soon.
