Many thanks:

Housing & Food Services (HFS) provides the UW Food Pantry with the physical space, utility, custodial support, and expert consultation at no cost.

HFS is also providing unsold ready-to-eat food from two campus cafes to the UW Food Pantry. Students will find them under the District Market brand.

UW Farm provides the UW Food Pantry with locally grown produce on a regular basis as their harvest allows. The UW Farm is a student powered operation with two campus locations and aims to be the campus center for the practice of urban agriculture and sustainability.

Starbucks has an ongoing commitment to address food insecurity through its national FoodShare program. The UW on-campus locations became the first campus-based stores in the country to participate in this program by shifting pre-packaged food items to the UW Food Pantry for redistribution.

The ASUW Bean Basket operates a student run cooperative that sells a variety of food staples, seasonings, teas, dried fruits, and nuts. By operating in this way they are able to keep food costs low for students and other campus partners Learn more about the Bean Basket Food Vouchers.

Office of Student Financial Aid provides critical access to financial support for UW students, through scholarships, grants, loans, emergency aid support, and food security grants, the office helps ensure fiscal stability for UW students.
