Triton Food Pantry
Our Triton Food Pantry exists to ensure that every UC San Diego student has the nutritional energy they need to succeed in a rigorous academic environment. Students worried about their next meal can’t be confident about their place on campus or focus on their studies.
Our goal is to make our students feel unstoppable and fearless in their pursuits. We want them to explore new ideas and discover new solutions, and that requires them to be mentally alert and at ease.
"I use the food pantry to feed my community. I bake and make pasta for programs I throw for my residents. They enjoy the free food, as do I and I am able to spread the love. It has alleviated the worry that I do not have enough budget to provide for all my residents, but I do when I have access to the food pantry."
We want our campus to be a safe haven where students feel secure in every way. That starts with addressing their most basic human needs with discreet, compassionate services.
Since the launch of the UC Global Food Initiative in 2015, UC San Diego has taken strategic action to ensure that all of our students have access to food, housing, health, and financial services. We want to inspire everyone on campus to be compassionate global citizens and that starts with treating our global campus community with compassion.
We want our students to feel empowered to change the world. Help us give them the nutritional power they need to do just that!
