Student walking on the Pace University, Pleasantville campus

Provisions, a Bhandari Jain Family Food Pantry

Provisions, a Bhandari Jain Family Food Pantry, is open to all students, staff and faculty, regardless of full-time/part-time status. Any member of our community that is experiencing food insecurity is welcome at Provisions during open hours. All guests will receive a one-week disbursement of non-perishable foods—and based on availability, fresh produce.

For record-keeping purposes, as well as fresh produce notifications during non-pantry hours, we do require that all guests:

All guests are guaranteed confidentially. As such your information will not be shared with anyone without your explicit permission.

In addition to food distribution, we are in partnership with the Food Bank for New York City which provides referral services for free tax preparation services, as well as assistance with SNAP enrollment.

Fare Trade

Fare Trade is a student-run mutual aid program designed to alleviate food insecurity on the Pace NYC campus. The program is partnered with Provisions, Chartwells, and Auxiliary Services to provide funds to food-insecure students.

Students are encouraged to reallocate their dining dollars to the mutual aid fund by requesting a "Fare Trade" at the cash registers in the cafeteria. 1 Fare Trade equals fifty cents and up to ten Fare Trades can be reallocated per purchase (up to $5.00 per purchase). See conversion chart below.

Seeking assistance? Complete the appeal form here. If eligible for funds, funding will be applied to the student's Pace One Card following Thanksgiving and/or Spring break.
