Teddy's Pantry

The mission of Teddy’s Pantry is to assist and support CSUDH students who experience food challenges at no cost to them.

Who is Eligible?

If you are currently enrolled as a CSUDH undergraduate or graduate student, you are eligible to use Teddy’s Pantry.

How Does It Work?

  • Students are able to visit the Pantry once a week during the hours of operation that can be found on this page. Hours are subject to change.
  • All pantry visitors must scan a QR code and will have 15 points to use while shopping. The final total must be 15 points. Each item has a tag showing its point value.
  • Kindly bring your reusable grocery bags for each visit.

Please only take what you need for the week and remember that this is a community resource.
