Arty's Pantry

Arty’s Pantry is a program provided by the Student Activities, Inclusion and Leadership Department at Aims Community College to ensure that all students have access to food and the basic supplies they need to succeed.

We want our students to be able to concentrate on their studies, plan for the semester, and not worry about how they will get their next meal.

Arty's Pantry is funded by the generous donations of Aims staff, faculty, the community and various grants. Pick-up is available to students at the Greeley, Windsor, Fort Lupton and Loveland campuses.

Arty's Pantry offers online ordering. Choose your pick-up location and time on the form and then show up to pick up your items. It's that easy! 

Support Arty's Pantry

Donations are gratefully accepted at the pantry in the Student Commons on the Greeley Campus. For information on how you can support Arty’s Pantry or how you can use Arty’s Pantry, please email Arty's Pantry
