Cougars Rock Hunger

Help us fight food insecurity on campus!

The food drive is happening now until November 15th!

Over 50% of students on our campus are facing food insecurity. This year, Cougars Rock Hunger is going to be held from November 1st through the 15th. We will be collecting food and funds to support both our Cougar Pantry and the San Diego Food Bank.

Let's help our community fight food insecurity and donate non-perishable food items in the blue bins that are placed around the campus. 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.

20% of financial donations will go to the Cougar Pantry! Visit THIS link to donate now! Don't forget to put "Cougars Rock Hunger 2017" in the donation information after you check out. For every $1 you donate, you are providing 5 meals for those in need.

Donate today in a blue bin!
