The pantry is open to all Minot State students, faculty, and staff during the operating hours of the Wellness Center. The food pantry is run by Lutheran Campus Ministries (

MSUWell is sponsoring food trucks on campus this summer. All food and coffee trucks will be parked outside the north entrance of the Beaver Dam on 11th Avenue next to the picnic tables.
