About Us

The PSU Food Pantry is a resource for currently enrolled students to acquire food items on a regular basis in a welcoming, inclusive, dignified environment.

Our Story:

The PSU Food Pantry was established by a group of students in ASPSU in 2012. We started as a small, student-run pantry on a single shelf, in hopes to better serve the ever-growing food insecure population of students at PSU. Over the years, we have become a partner agency of the Oregon Food Bank, received more financial donations, and changed space, but we continue to be an organization lead entirely by students, for students.

Today we provide food for nearly 2,000 students annually, assist students in accessing government assistance, and provide a safe, inclusive space for PSU's diverse student population.

How to use the PSU Food Pantry:

Please make sure to have your PSU Student ID, or other proof of student status, to show our pantry staff or volunteers.

Pick out five non-perishable items.

Pick out produce, refrigerated, and frozen items according to their posted limits.

Bring your items up to the volunteer or staff so that they can log them out.

We will ask you two questions: Have you visited the PSU Food Pantry before? Are you enrolled in one or more credits?

Then you're done!

*We encourage you to bring your own bags! We rely heavily on donated reusable, plastic, or paper bags.
