​Emergency Support & Resources

Hunter College is dedicated to the health, wellness and safety of our student body. The following resources are open and available to all currently enrolled students; if they are relevant to your situation, we urge you to make use of them.

The Purple Apron Food Pantry

We are relaunching our Fresh Food Box program at both our Brookdale and 68th Street campus locations.

Our Fresh Food Boxes include bread, eggs and produce locally sourced by New York farms. In addition, Purple Apron Pantry bags will be available. One bag will make about four meals, and includes non-perishable canned and dry foods, and may include produce, dairy, or frozen meat if available.

Boxes and bags will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. No sign-up required. Walk-ins welcome!

The Purple Apron Food Pantry is open to all currently enrolled CUNY students with current CUNY ID. Please bring your own reusable bag, if possible.
