Donate to the Food Pantry

Donate Items to the Pantry

We will happily accept any toiletries and/or non-perishable food items that are un-opened and within their best-by/expiration dates. There is a green donation bin in the Gleeson Library Atrium that is checked regularly. Please take any items there to be donated. If your items are glass or larger than the donation bin, please bring them to the UC 5th floor front desk to be collected by a member of the Food Pantry team. 


Helping is Caring

GoUSF partners with the food pantry to provide donation drives of non-perishable items that may be a challenge for some of our students to obtain. All donations will be collected in the green bin which lives in the Gleeson Library Atrium.

The donation drives are open to faculty, staff and students and will be announced through social media. Once the items are collected, they will be available on that Friday distribution day on a first-come, first-serve basis until our supply is depleted.

If you aren't working on campus, you can also donate online. Details here.

We once again would like to thank our community for coming together to donate to our Food Pantry. We received 100% participation from our leadership team! In all, 114 employees donated $6000+. This amount is enough to cover the pantry’s operating budget 4 openings, which feeds a total of 400-500 students plus 130 Thanksgiving dinners. Donations will be used to purchase non-perishable food items, hygiene products, and fresh produce for our students.

Human Resources thanks our partners, Information Technology Services (ITS) and the Office of Development, for creating this wonderful opportunity to benefit our students.

The University of San Francisco’s Food Pantry was established in the fall 2018 semester and is available to all undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at the University. The pantry is meant to provide an intermediate solution for students who are experiencing food insecurity. Being food insecure means having limited or uncertain access to a sufficient quantity of food (USDA, 2011) Any questions about the pantry program can be directed to or (415) 422-4099.
