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.
HOW TO RECEIVE FOOD/HYGIENE ITEMS
Pantry services may be utilized once per week. We are providing both in-person pick-up as well as delivery for students living within 30 miles of campus. You are required to bring your UWT Student ID or any information reflecting current UWT enrollment at food pick-up.
