Hawk Feeder Micro-Pantries

Students standing with micro-pantry full of food and supplies

"Take What You Need—Give What You Can"

The CSM Student Association, in partnership with the President's Council, has installed micro-pantries, named Hawk Feeders, on each of CSM's four campuses to help address short-term basic needs sometimes experienced by our students and community members.

The free-standing cabinets allow people to leave donated goods for others to pick up anonymously. Staff and faculty are encouraged to fill the Hawk Feeders with non-perishable food items and toiletries. The boxes operate on the simple concept of "Take what you need, give what you can."

Upcoming Mobile Hawk Feeder Dates

The College of Southern Maryland is a community, and members of a community take care of each other. If you or your family are having difficulty putting food on the table, CSM would like to help.

We’re asking that you fill out a short form to make sure we have enough food packages on hand. Complete pickup instructions will be provided after you submit the form.
