About

Help us make sure no poke goes hungry!  

Your financial contribution will help us keep the food share pantry and cabinets stocked as we work simultaneously to meet growing demands and expand our services. During this time, food costs have increased dramatically. As more and more students become aware of food security resources, we expect to see even further increased usage. 

When comparing year-to-year numbers, we are distributing around 50% more pounds of food to nearly twice as many visitors. Additionally, the food share pantry has increased support to food share cabinets across campus, distributing about 1,500 pounds of food to these partners in November alone.  

“I really value the food share pantry on campus because I think it’s a great resource for students and others experiencing financial difficulties, especially if they aren’t comfortable going into the community for help. The food share pantry is at least one thing that helps provide underserved students more equal access to education that is so important!" – Emilygrace Piel, UW senior
