Lobo's Pantry provides nutritious food, CalFresh food program assistance, and referral services for students experiencing food insecurity. Lobo's Pantry is free to all SSU students.

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.
For more information, please contact Erik Dickson, firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your support!
