Cougars Rock Hunger

Cougars Rock Hunger

This annual food drive takes place each year in the Fall Semester. 

Over 50% of students on our campus are facing food insecurity. Collected food and funds support both our Cougar Pantry and the San Diego Food Bank. Students that share a picture of themselves donating to one of our bins and post it on Instagram with the hashtag #rockhunger18 will be entered into an opportunity drawing for a chance to win a prize. 


Help us fight food insecurity on campus!

Barrel locations include: Kellogg Library (2nd & 3rd floor), Epstein Family Veterans Center, Latin@ Center, Black Student Center, Gender Equity Center, Cross-Cultural Center, Pride Center, ASI Office, Student Life & Leadership Center, Crash's Cafe, the Market, and the Food Court.

The most needed food items are: canned chicken & tuna, dry & canned beans, cereal, rice, nuts & seeds, peanut butter, canned soup, canned & dried fruit, dried pasta, canned vegetables, powdered milk and infant formula.

Don't have any physical cans to donate? You can make a financial donation by visitin our virtual food drive!
