The Shocker Support Locker, formally, the Shocker Food Pantry, was founded by the 58th session of the Student Government Association on November 4, 2015 to address a study that showed that 56% of Wichita State University students knew of at least one to three other students who faced food insecurity and 50% of students (67% of international students) admitted to skipping a meal because they could not afford to eat.

The Shocker Support Locker opened its doors on February 1, 2016 to all Wichita State University students, faculty and staff. The Shocker Support Locker gives students, faculty and staff access to food, clothing, toiletries, and baby/family products. The Shocker Support Locker is coordinated and managed by the Student Government Association and Office of Student Engagement, Advocacy, and Leadership. 

The Shocker Support Locker is located on the first floor of Grace Wilkie Hall Room 103, right next to the Military and Veteran Student Center and the LAS Advising Center.
