As a campus community, we strive to promote the well-being and success of all members of our Puget Sound community (students, staff, and faculty). To assist those struggling with food insecurities and/or lack of consistent access to nutritious and/or affordable foods, the Center for Student Support hosts an on-campus food pantry. The pantry includes gluten-free items, frozen meals, noodles, rice, canned fruit, and various other snacks and nutrition options. The pantry also stocks a number of toiletries and hygienic products. We respect the identities and backgrounds of all members on this campus and we strive to make this food pantry a welcoming place for all who need its contents.

We invite you to visit the food pantry at 3215 N 13th Street (house next door to the CSS house). Enter through the front door; the pantry is toward the back of the building.  Hours are as follows: 

  • Every day, 8AM - 10PM (accessible via LoggerCard swipe)

Please email if you have questions or comments -- or feel free to use the suggestions/question box within the pantry.

If you would like to donate nonperishable items to the pantry, please use the general donations box located on the porch of the Center for Student Support. Our staff monitors the donation box and the Food Pantry regularly.
