The Central Food Pantry will be open on Tuesday afternoons between 1-4 pm. We ask that you please meet one of our staff members by the door on the side facing Patterson Hall during that time. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or if you are in need of accommodations.
Due to COVID-19, we are expecting food pantry need to increase drastically on our campus. Our office is taking measures to practice social distancing, so collecting donations at this time is not a feasible option. If you would like to share your resources in the form of a monetary donation that will be used to restock the pantries, please click the button below.
MISSON: The EWU Food Pantry Program aims to alleviate hunger and foster a healthy and inclusive community by providing access to nutritious food. All members of the EWU community are invited to take what they need from the cabinets and central pantry.
A big thanks to our community partners and sponsors!
