Updated Food Pantry Information

The Food Pantry will be open this week on Wednesday, June 2 from 10:30am to 1:00pm and on Friday, June 4 from 10:30am to 1:00pm.   

The Office of Student Life would like to remind you that the CSI Food Pantry will continue to be an available resource on campus throughout the semester. If you or a student you know is having difficulties finding food to eat during this challenging time, CSI has a non-perishable Food Pantry that was created to help provide assistance for our students. Throughout the Spring semester, the pantry remains available to our campus community by appointment only.  ​

The Spring 2021 CSI Food Pantry appointment hours will be from 10:30am to 1:00pm on Wednesdays and Fridays for the Spring semester. If you need to make an appointment, please fill out the online form and someone from the Office of Student Life will contact you. Please note, if the dates and times listed above do not work for your schedule or if you have any questions, please feel free to email us at studentlife@csi.cuny.edu

All CUNY campus locations (including CSI) require that all faculty, staff, and students download and complete the Everbridge Health Checker app before coming to campus. This simple Symptom Checker can and should be accessed from your mobile phone each day before your visit to campus. After a brief one-time setup of the Everbridge app, the daily Symptom Checker takes less than two minutes to complete. It is an important reminder to consider whether you have symptoms of or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 before you enter any CUNY facility. You will need to Login using your CUNY Login credentials: (Username: Firstname.Lastname@login.cuny.edu).  

For more information about CUNY’s policy on Campus re-entry or on the Everbridge App, please go online.
