Research indicates that food insecurity isn't a stand-alone challenge. Often, food insecurity is a sign of other socio-economic hardships (such as housing insecurity, lack of access to healthcare, financial hardship, etc.). 
We will do our best to keep this page updated with other resources that might help you. Please feel free to send us feedback for any suggestions.

Community Resources

The Fargo/Moorhead area is home to over 14 food pantries.


We've compiled a user-friendly guide that lists out these pantries as well as an overview of key information you'll need—hours/day of service, what you need to bring with you, what food/items they provide, and a map of their locations, . 

Connect with the Center for Holistic Health

Our staff can help you access and connect you to additional resources based on your needs.


Cooking Tutorials

Spring Break 2023 cooking tutorials! Check out easy step-by-step meals you can make with items from the food pantry. A video is included where our Basic Needs Coordinator walks you through the recipe.



MATBUS is the public transportation system that serves the Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo region and is an excellent source of transportation to access the local food pantries. Concordia faculty, staff, and students are all able to ride MATBUS for free. All you need to do is present your Concordia ID.
