The Cherry Pantry, Temple University’s food pantry, will move to the Temple Police substation in Morgan Hall South on Park Avenue near Cecil B. Moore amid the spread of COVID-19, wrote Ray Betzner, a spokesperson for the university, in an email to The Temple News.

Students will “grab and go” a grocery bag of food after they have shown their ID, Betzner wrote. The pantry will open on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and Fridays from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., according to a tweet from Temple Police.

Donations to the pantry have continued and are currently being transferred to the substation, Betzner wrote.
