PennWest California Pantry

Food insecurity can keep college students from reaching their educational goals.

The PennWest California Pantry assists our students by providing food, academic supplies and personal hygiene items, so they can continue on the path toward graduation.

Operated by PennWest California’s Center for Volunteer Programs and Service Learning and supported by our generous donors, the campus-based food pantry helps to meet students’ basic needs with compassion and discretion. We recognize that even ambitious, hard-working college students sometimes need a helping hand.

Make a Request

Students in need can ask to receive food or non-food supplies (personal hygiene items or school supplies) online. Requests placed by the close of business on Mondays will be available for pickup on Wednesdays. You will receive a confirmation notice with next steps once you make your request.
