Any Hungry Husky


No Husky should go hungry

The UW Campus Food Pantry envisions a UW community wherein success is not impeded by hunger.

Mission, Vision, and Values

In partnership with Any Hungry Husky, The Pantry helps mitigate the social and academic effects of campus food insecurity. By providing students, staff, and faculty with access to shelf-stable, non-perishable goods and community resources at no cost, we aim to lessens the financial burden of purchasing food and supplement nutritional needs.  

Through regular pantry events, campus food drives, community donations, educational efforts, and broader community engagement, we take steps to reduce hunger, end the stigma of food insecurity, reduce food waste, and advocate for student success.

Student and staff success is predicated on the notion that the needs of the whole person is addressed, and we are helping to address one facet of this need through hunger relief.

The Pantry values:

  • A dignifying shopping experience free of judgement and stigma
  • Cross-sector collaboration and community partnership development
  • Equitable and sustainable food practice, food accessibility, & food justice
  • Educational quality, access, and success

What we do:

  1. Coordinate Food drives
  2. Provide food to students, staff, faculty by hosting Pop-up pantries and individual shopping appointments
  3. Solicit Donations
  4. Provide community resources
  5. Respond to the needs of core audiences: shoppers, donors, administrators
