Lobo's Pantry

Lobo's Pantry 

(updated Jan. 4, 2021)

The food pantry carries nonperishable food items. Examples of nonperishable food include pasta, canned vegetables, dry rice, powdered milk, soup and cereal.

Lobo's Pantry is using an online form for students to order shelf stable food items. Students can select up to 12 items each week from our pantry stock and may place their order 3 days prior to the scheduled pick up date. 

For safety purposes, bag distribution is broken up into two areas of campus based on if you live on or off campus.

During winter break, the Pantry will distribute groceries on Jan. 5, Jan. 14, and January 21, 2021.

Grocery Pick Up Locations and Safety Protocols

For students who are living on campus, orders will be delivered to your unit from 1-2:30pm on the distribution date.

For students who are living off campus, pick up will be on the Vine Street Circle in front of the SSU Flagpoles from 3-5:30pm

Masks are required at pick up, social distancing is also required if a line is formed. Hand sanitizer will be available, if needed. Please make arrangements for someone else to pick up your groceries for you if you have any COVID-19 symptoms.

More information regarding the pick up process is detailed in the forms linked below. Any questions can be sent to Natalie Frankel at frankeln@sonoma.edu.

How can I donate to Lobo's Pantry?

For those interested in donating items to the pantry, we are in need of personal hygiene items (toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, feminine hygiene products, etc.) as well as paper and plastic shopping bags. You may also make a monetary donation to Lobo's Food Pantry online. We thank you for your generosity. It is deeply appreciated!

Donations of personal hygiene items can be brought to the flagpole circle on food distribution days from 3:00-5:30pm where there will be two large black bins to drop donations in. You must complete the Wellness Check prior to coming to campus, and be masked when dropping off items.
