We understand that inflation has made it very difficult for some students to obtain the food you need to be successful in college, and we are here to help! If you are in need of a few extra things, please stop into one of our pantry locations and grab some free groceries! No questions asked, no proof of income necessary.
Queer Student Center
There is a satellite pantry located within the Queer Student Center, I-107, that has pantry items for home, as well as grab and go food for students on the go. Please stop into the Center to pick up some free items! For a larger amount of food, please see Cuyamaca Cares.
Located on the first floor of the Student Center, students are able to grab a quick snack between classes or pantry items for home. Visit Cuyamaca Cares at the Coyote Den!
