Food Donations

Students, staff, faculty, and community members have been incredibly generous in contributing to the Food Pantry’s success. Thank you for your ongoing support of our efforts! 

We are currently in need of the following items. We prefer pop-up lids for ease. 

  • Canned meals in pop-up lids (stew, chili, soup, Chef Boyardee)
  • Canned meat in pop-up lids (Spam, tuna, chicken, pork) 
  • Individual snacks (granola bars, crackers, cereal bars, cereal in single servings)
  • Healthy snack options (raisins, apricots, applesauce, cranberries, nuts)
  • Cup-of-Noodle (not packets)
  • Juice in single serving boxes
  • Canned fruit in pop-up lids
  • Recyclable bags and Ziploc bags

Please think “nutrition” and also ease of opening as you purchase donations. Additionally, please check expiration dates! 

Monetary Donations

Donations of monetary value can be made directly to either the Toro Food Pantry or the CSUDH Emergency Grant Fund.

The Food Pantry's mission is to supply students with supplemental canned foods and basic hygiene products. It is operated in a safe, confidential zone, and without validation of need. There are no restrictions on how many times a student can visit and take advantage of services.

The CSUDH Emergency Grant Fund provides aid ranging from $250 to $1000 to all eligible undergraduate, graduate, and credential students with verifiable need.
