ACE Campus Food Pantry is an initiative that provides fresh produce, toiletries, and a large selection of shelf-stable food and snacks for Boilermakers (students, faculty, and staff), so that they have the basic items they need to thrive while at Purdue. ACE has been entirely student-led since it opened its doors in August 2015 and now hosts 2,000+ client visits per year on average. All items at ACE are free of charge to clients (anyone with a PUID).

ACE Wishlist 2022

This year, in addition to our Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, ACE is coordinating a food drive which will take place Tuesday, January 18th through Friday, January 21st. In order to follow Protect Purdue guidelines, anyone hoping to donate may do so by selecting a location from the options below, or donating on behalf of a corresponding organization. The ACE Pantry van (recognizable by its bright purple polka dot exterior) will be parked outside of the following locations during the times listed, and items may be donated by walking or driving up to the van. Each donor will receive a small thank-you gift from ACE for their generosity.
