The Food Bank provides the tremendous blessing of free, non-perishable foods and household items to all Seminary students and their families. It is located on the lower floor of the Benidt Seminary Center (directly beneath Koburg Dining Hall).
Students shop once a month for groceries free of charge. A point system is utilized (according to size of family) to determine how much each family may receive each month. The Food Bank allows students and their families the opportunity to stretch their resources beyond any expectations they might have had prior to Seminary enrollment.
Hours of Operation – when classes are in session
- The 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month from 9 a.m.–noon
