The Big Blue Pantry Gift Fund supports the Big Blue Pantry for students who experience food insecurity. The Big Blue Pantry provides non-perishable food and hygiene items and limited perishable goods for any student in need. Since its founding in 2014, the Big Blue Pantry has continued to grow its number of visits annually, with 2,000 visits in the 2019-2020 school year, serving more than 400 individual students. Any donated funds go to supplement donated food to ensure students have access to a range of healthy and culturally appropriate options. A recent campus study found that more than 40% of UK students experience some level of food insecurity during their college career and the Big Blue Pantry is one resource to help combat the effects.
