When hunger is your constant companion, it’s hard to think of anything else.


The national statistics on student food insecurity are staggering – a 2017 study of 43,000 students conducted by the Wisconsin Hope Lab found that 36% of university students were affected by food insecurity. Brandeis is not immune.

27% of Heller students reported food insecurity when surveyed last spring. Don’t you agree that even one hungry student is one student too many?

Fortunately for Heller and other students at Brandeis, there are food resources on campus, including a burgeoning food pantry and a grassroots message board that shares where free food can be found after campus events. The demand for these food resources is growing, and we can help make sure that our Heller students have “food for thought” by donating to the Brandeis Food Pantry. Let’s be #OneForBrandeis. 

Can you help us turn this #GivingTuesday, November 27, 2018 into a 24-hour sprint for generosity and sharing? Each gift of $10 can help the Brandeis Food Pantry provide supplies for three meals for a hungry student.

And, even better, your gift counts toward a $2,000 challenge gift offered by a group of generous alumni donors, who will provide an additional $2,000 to the food pantry once we achieve 100 #GivingTuesday donors. Help us get to 100 donors today!

During this season of sharing, thank you for making a gift supporting Heller and Brandeis students in this impactful way!


We did it!
Nov 27, 2018

We are thrilled to have surpassed our initial goal of 1,250 donors! There is still time to be #OneForBrandeis on this record-breaking day.

Thank you to all of our alumni, parents, students, staff, faculty, and friends who came together today to support everything that makes Brandeis special.
