The CSUN Food Pantry can provide food and toiletries for CSUN students, faculty, and staff in need. Individuals may visit the CSUN Food Pantry ONCE per week and at each visit they receive a week’s worth food. Toiletries are available upon on request.

Currently the CSUN Food Pantry is not taking volunteers. If interested in volunteering with the Food Basic Needs programs opportunities are available for CalFresh Outreach (calfreshcsun1@gmail.com), CalFresh Healthy Living (csun.cfhl@gmail.com). and the CSUN Pop-Up Pantry (popuppantry@csun.edu).
