Donate Financially

All donations will support Feed the Stampede initiatives and will go directly towards fighting food insecurity on the CU Boulder campus. Money will be used to purchase food for distribution, meal swipes for on-campus meals, and grocery store gift cards for students in need.

Donate to Feed the Stampede

Donate Food

The Feed the Stampede program will graciously accept food and personal care item donations from students, staff, faculty, and community members to distribute to Buff Pantry clients. The Buff Pantry accepts shelf stable items that have at least a 3 month window to expiration. For questions regarding donations, email
