UCI Food Pantry

Section 1

The UCI Food Pantry at FRESH provides emergency food and toiletries to UCI students experiencing basic needs insecurities. You can access our weekly pantry distribution using your UCI Student ID card or by providing your student ID number at the registration table. All information is kept confidential.  Item maximums are regulated through our one basket per student policy.

Face coverings will continue to be available at the FRESH Hub for those who would like to utilize them. For your personal safety and the safety of our team, please stay home if you are not feeling well and email fresh@uci.edu for alternative support.

Before arriving at your pantry appointment, please be ready to show your pantry appointment email confirmation to a FRESH staff member.

We encourage all students to submit the FRESH Intake Survey at bit.ly/fresh-member to assess how they fare in meeting their basic needs as a college student.

As an emergency food service, UCI students may only access the UCI Food Pantry once a week. In accordance with this pantry policy, please only schedule one pantry appointment each week. If you are no longer able to visit the pantry at your scheduled appointment time, please cancel or reschedule the appointment. Scheduling multiple pantry appointments prevents other students from securing a pantry appointment time that works with their schedule.

If you are experiencing greater need, please email our Assistant Director, Janine Algabre at jalgabre@uci.edu to inquire about additional pantry usage and related resources.
