Community

For nearly 100 years, Quinnipiac University has called New Haven county, home. And with our 3 campuses located in the towns of Hamden and North Haven, we take our responsibility as a good community member and neighbor seriously. We are committed to doing our part to enhance and enrich the quality of life for our students and the residents in both communities through open communication, collaboration and positive action.

Working Together

Working to reduce hunger and support food recovery in our community

Quinnipiac and Haven’s Harvest formally announced a new partnership that will help reduce hunger and support food recovery in Hamden.

Quinnipiac Dining, which oversees food services at the university, is now donating its excess food directly to Hamden residents through Haven’s Harvest, a nonprofit organization that currently provides food to those facing food insecurity throughout Greater New Haven. Quinnipiac students will volunteer to help distribute the food throughout Hamden.
