CalFresh Outreach

CalFresh is a nutrition assistance program that helps low-income individuals and families buy the food they need.
CalFresh dollars help stretch a tight food budget and help many people afford to incorporate healthy foods like fruits and vegetables into their diets.

CSUN Pop-Up Pantry

Our newest basic needs initiative will pop up at different locations around campus once a month and will provide food resources to our campus community. Resources provided include fresh fruits and vegetables, food tastings, recipe cards, CalFresh application screening and assistance and information about other basic needs resources in our campus. Individuals visiting the Pop-Up Pantry receive fresh fruits and vegetables, available through donation from our community partner, MEND. The variety or produce varies from month to month, depending on availability. 

Pop-Ups occur at different locations around campus once to twice a month.





Who is eligible for services?

The Pop-Up Pantry is open to all CSUN students, faculty, and staff.

How often can I visit the pantry?

Individuals may visit every Pop-Up event throughout the semester.

How does it work?

Individuals simply check-in with their CSUN ID’s before entering the Pop-Up Pantry. First time visitors to the pop-up pantry are provided a reusable bag and are expected to bring the reusable bag back for subsequent visits. Once checked-in, visitors will walk through the pop-up and select the produce, they wish to take home.
