Swoops Pantry Image
Swoop’s Food Pantry opened its doors in September 2015 and has seen enormous growth! Enjoy our Celebration Video as we reflect on the impact Swoop’s Food Pantry has had on the EMU Community! 

As always, thank you for your continued support!

Choose your impact


Donations of non-perishable items are always welcome, items can be dropped off at the John and Angie Sabo Swoop's Food Pantry Room 104 Pierce Hall, the School of Social Work office in 319 Marshall, or by scheduling an appointment. To schedule an appointment, email [email protected]. We cannot accept non-perishables that have expired or are open.

Current needs

We are seeking these supplies through donation to keep up with demand:

  • Rice, large snacks, cereal, garbanzo beans and large containers of juices.
  • Self-care items such as  body lotion, soap and bubble bath.  Also creative outlets such as used (but with all the pieces!)  puzzles, games, journals and other creative things such as coloring books, markers and crayons.

Swoop’s can arrange pick-up of these items from your porch if you are in the Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor area. Please email Swoop’s to inquire about making a food or self-care product donation, or to arrange a pickup, at  [email protected].

Other ways to help

Monetary donations have an immediate impact on our pantry by allowing us to purchase items that we do not receive through food drives.
