STUDENT Resources

Beginning with the Fall 2023 semester, WVU Tech established the Bear Necessities Student Pantry to combat food insecurity and period poverty on campus in a confidential setting.

The pantry is open to ALL WVU Tech students.

Let us help.

Students must submit the Bear Necessities Request Form to request items. Items will be discreetly packaged for pickup by the student once they are ready. Our staff will reach out once items are ready for pickup. Student information is always safe and confidential when a request is made to the Bear Necessities

I need to make a request      What resources are available?

Do you know someone who needs help? Let us know.

If you know of a student who is hungry and/or in between meals, please email  We will work the student to help them find items in the pantry. Additionally, students will have access to personal hygiene items, including feminine hygiene items, at no cost. We will also connect students to resources available through our community partners for resources we are not able to address their needs with on-campus resources.

Do you want to help? We'd love your support.

Combating food insecurity and period poverty is a community effort and we are blessed to have strong community partners. If you or your organization is interested in purchasing items for the pantry, please register using our Donation Form. We will contact organizations in order of registration with a list of items needed for the pantry and to schedule delivery.

Please be mindful of expiration dates and packaging as we will not distribute out of date or damaged items to students.
