Cuyamaca Cares Pantry


Cuyamaca Cares welcomes you back for the spring 2024 semester! Students can now visit the Cuyamaca Cares office and get free groceries. We will be distributing tons of food on the following days:


Tuesdays from 10:00am to 3:00pm

Wednesdays from 10:00am to 3:00pm

Thursdays from 12:00pm to 5:00pm


Appointments are no longer necessary! We are now taking drop-ins only, please feel free to come on in! We are requiring students to park in the campus parking lots and walk to our office to prevent a traffic build-up in front of our office, if you park in front of our office you will be asked to move your car before receiving groceries. If you have a mobility disability, please feel free to drive up to our front door as before.


Cuyamaca Cares is now located near the Child Development Center. You can find us on the campus map.


Cuyamaca Cares is proud to introduce Satellite Pantries! These small pantries are set up across the campus to ensure that free food is never far away. To find a satellite pantry near you on campus, please click the button:
