Lobo's Pantry

Lobo's Pantry 

(updated August 24, 2020)

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

For the Fall 2020 semester, Lobo's Pantry will be 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 are asked to pick up their prepackaged bags every Thursday.

Orders are accepted weekly from 12:00pm on Monday to 11:59am on Wednesday. 

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

For students who are living on campus, pick up will be outside of the Beaujolais Meeting Room from 1-2:30pm every Thursday.

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, and hand sanitizer will be available at both locations if needed. 

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.

Off Campus Order Form

For those interested in donating items to the pantry, we are in need of hygiene items (toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, feminine hygiene products, etc.) as well as paper and plastic shopping bags.

Donations can be brought to the flagpole circle on Thursdays 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, dickson@sonoma.eduThank you for your support!

Grocery Shopping for a Quarantine: What To Buy and How Much

Keeping shelf stable foods on hand, such as items you can get from Lobo's Pantry, is a great way to be prepared should you need to quarantine for a couple of weeks. Check out this Huffington Post video for ideas on nourishing foods to stock in your panty or freezer that will get you through a two week period if you are unable to go shopping for any reason. Whatever you do, don't panic! With a little advanced planning, and keeping things simple, the stress of self-quarantining will be much less!
