Washburn University's food and commodities pantry

Bods Feeding Bods is Washburn University's food and commodities pantry. We stock FREE groceries, household and hygiene items, and even books and school supplies. It is free and easy to use the pantry: just stop by during our open hours and show your WUID or share your WIN number. Then, shop the pantry like you would at a grocery store.

New outpost locations

Can’t make it to the main pantry? BFB has three “Outposts” located around campus in Henderson Hall Room 224, Morgan Hall Room 236-B, and in the Village Commons.

The BFB Outposts stock food items that are quick and easy to eat in the moment, commodity items that you might need right now like hygiene products, and a microwave. The BFB Outposts are super convenient when you do not have time to visit the main pantry.

These Outposts are open whenever the building they are located in is open and do not require that you interact with a staff person to collect your items. Like the main pantry, all of the items are free to those who need them.

New dining "swipe" program

Bods Feeding Bods (BFB) has purchased $10,000 worth of dining “swipes” for students who run out or otherwise need additional swipes from Chartwells in Spring 2023. Any currently enrolled Washburn University undergraduate or graduate student who has no swipes remaining on their iCard can use the program.

Are you a WU Tech / GED, or ESOL student?

You can order online and have your items shipped to your WU Tech campus. We ship to the Huntoon campus, WU Tech East, and WU Tech Cosmetology.
