Hunger shouldn't be a rite of passage for college students. 

Students at Oregon State have been supporting other students to get their basic needs met for over a decade. Unfortunately, the rising cost of college across the country means that too many students experience barriers to getting enough food. HSRC has resources for students who are on a tight budget, those who are busy, students who are learning to cook, and those who are feeding families and dependents. 

Each year, thousands of students apply for Food Assistance funds, hundreds visit the HSRC Food Pantry and many more are looking forward to events on campus where they can snag free food. If your cabinets are a little empty, you're skipping meals or otherwise stressed about food, the HSRC has resources to help. 

THE OSU FOOD PANTRY HAS BEEN HELPING FEED OUR COMMUNITY SINCE 2009

Dr. Sarah E. Cunningham and Dana M. Johnson started our pantry as a graduate project. Their goal was to help connect students with needed resources, on campus. Thanks to our partnership with the Linn-Benton Food Share and generous support to our OSU Foundation account, we are able to offer grocery support weekly. Students and community members are able to select the food they would like to bring home. 

The HSRC Food Pantry is located at 1030 SW Madison Ave, Champinefu Lodge. Street parking is available on Madison Avenue, 11th street, and other neighboring city streets. The parking lot immediately east of Champinefu also has parking available, including multiple short-term spots. 

Any person who meets income qualifications can seek support from the OSU Food Pantry as often as needed.

Alternate grocery pick-up options

We understand that sometimes the scheduled grocery times don't work for some schedules. Individuals can make an appointment to pick up a food box at an alternate time. Please understand that food choice and availability is best on our scheduled program operations. Food boxes may not include the same choice or volume of food due to logistical limitations with our food delivery schedules.
