Spring 2021 Plan and Information
COVID-19 Updates and Information

PAWS Pantry

Under advisement from the MD Food Bank and MD Department of Health, the FSU PAWS Pantry has transitioned to a pre-packed bag style pantry in order to maintain proper Social Distancing.

IMPORTANT!! Customers who are showing symptoms of COVID-19, have been in exposed to the virus, or have been instructed to self-isolate SHOULD NOT visit the pantry for any reason. Instead, please send a request to PAWSPantry@frostburg.edu as soon as you are aware of this situation to set up a delivery. More details about how the delivery will work will be sent to you upon your request. This is not an open service! As we are working with limited staff, we ask that only those who have been exposed to the virus, have been informed to self-quarantine and/or are symptomatic use this option.

FSU Students who have never used the Pantry before, but would like to sign up, must first complete the PAWS Pantry Intake and Liability Waiver Form. We encourage you to do this before you visit the pantry, but it can be completed on site. You will be assigned a Pantry ID number upon your first visit to the Pantry.

Pre-Packed Bag Options

Customers are permitted any combination of bags. There is a four bag limit per customer.
To increase efficiency, customers who know they will request a customizable bag OR have dietary restrictions (ie. Gluten free), should email in by noon of the day before so the bag can be prepped in advance. Please include items you would like. Bags will be prepped with items that are available. Customers can add to bags once at the door. Please include your Pantry ID number with your request.

When you approach the window, tell us how many of each type of bag you would like, as well as any dietary restrictions.
