The Pantry

The Pantry exists to provide free supplemental, nutritious, and culturally relevant food as well as hygiene items to all UWT students on campus. In an effort to support our students who may be lacking basic needs for themselves and their families, the CEI partners with Nourish Pierce County to provide nutritional and accessible items to all UWT students on campus. In addition the CEI has partnered with several other organizations on campus to do annual Pantry Drives to help support The Pantry. 


Pantry services may be utilized once per week. You are required to bring your UWT Student ID or any information reflecting current UWT enrollment at food pick-up. 

 Stop by during weekly drop-in hours or fill out an online food request form.

The Pantry is open Monday - Friday | 9:00am-5:00pm

*The Pantry does not operate Saturday and Sunday. However, an online request form may be submitted below.

How to Donate

The Pantry accepts all food and hygiene item donations. Please note that we cannot accept items that are damaged, expired, or open. We also have a fridge and freezer which allows us to have perishable items such as produce and dairy products alike. We ask that you be mindful with your donations to ensure that you keep the students in mind when donating. Items can be dropped off directly at the Pantry.
