Until in-person classes resume, the FSU Panama City Seminole Exchange will be open Tuesdays from 2 - 5 p.m. and Fridays from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. by appointment only. Appointments can be made up to 24-hours in advance. Students can review relevant policies and sign up for an appointment at https://fsupcexchange.youcanbook.me.
The Food Pantry is located in the Holley Academic Center and staff will be administering prepared bags of food to students in the Holley Circle; students should remain in their vehicles. Students are asked to restrict their visits to their appointment times and can expect to present their current FSUCard.
Students who, in the past 14 days, are experiencing a fever, cough, or shortness of breath; or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for coronavirus COVID-19 will be asked not to utilize the Seminole Exchange.
Community food pantries are expected to remain open for the foreseeable future. Students who are unable to visit the FSU PC Food Pantry should consider referencing this list of pantry referrals through Feed the Gulf Coast: https://www.feedingthegulfcoast.org/find-help/find-a-pantry or A Hand Up: https://www.ahandupintl.org/

Students are encouraged to utilize community food pantries currently open to distributing food. Please refer to the list of Bay County Food Pantries for locations and distribution times.
Give what you can. Take what you need.
Food insecurity can prevent students from achieving their educational and professional goals. For many students,
the choice between paying bills or eating is just a missed paycheck away. According to the 2018 Hunger on Campus Report, 30% of college students are food insecure and lack sufficient access to nutritionally adequate and safe foods.
The Seminole Exchange is an open and inviting space for students to grab a quick bite on the go or bag up groceries for their families at home. Offering non-perishable food and hygiene items, it helps ensure all members of the FSU PC family are healthy and ready to learn.
Who can use the Seminole Exchange?
Items in the exchange are available for free for all FSU Panama City students.
