About Us

We strive to provide healthy and filling options along with quick and easy meals and snacks.  We also have school supplies and personal hygiene products.

With more than one-third of university students nationally food insecure, some UW-Stout staff knew they wanted to do something to help.

On April 2, 2018 Helping Hand food plus pantry opened at UW-Stout for all students. Helping Hand provides access to food and other life essentials for students facing any level of food insecurity.

  • personal hygiene items
  • food
  • household items
  • winter coats
  • hats/mittens
