Helping is Caring
GoUSF is partnering with the food pantry to provide monthly 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 new green bin which lives in the Gleeson Library Atrium.
The donation drives are open to faculty, staff and students and will last a week each month and be held in conjunction with one of the food pantry distribution days. They 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.

Donation Drive Summaries
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 the Dean of Students Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (415) 422-4099.
