Food Distribution banner.

The Food Distribution is an event designed to provide relief to students facing food insecurity by providing a box of non-perishable food items. Food Distributions are held twice a month and made possible by the generous support from the California Faculty Association (CFA), Warrior Food Pantry, and the United Samaritans Foundation. The Food Distribution and Warrior Food Pantry are open to all currently enrolled Stan State students.

Please Note: Items obtained at the Food Distribution do NOT count against items obtained at the Warrior Food Pantry.
