The Cougar Pantry serves all CSUSM students in an effort to decrease food insecurity on campus. The pantry stocks a variety of dry and canned goods, limited produce, milk, and toiletries. A service and initiative of the ASI Board of Directors, the Cougar Pantry is managed by a team of students, interns, volunteers, and staff.
Each currently enrolled, CSUSM student can visit the pantry once a week with no appointment OR make an appointment online. To utilize the pantry, we just ask that we scan your CSUSM student ID and that you bring a reusable bag to carry your goods.
