About Us

The CSUB Food Pantry is open to CSUB students, staff, and faculty. We are located just north of the Student Union, before reaching Parking Lot M. Please see the Point System and Hours of Operation section below to learn how you can drop by the pantry and pick up free food each week.

A diverse group of students, staff, and faculty, including the Food and Housing Security Committee, Associated Students, Inc., and CSUB Sustainability, help to advance the Food Pantry's goals of increasing food security, reducing food waste, and expanding nutrition education at CSU Bakersfield.
