About the Poly Pantry

The Poly Pantry was established in 2019 to serve students impacted by food insecurity.  By providing access to food and hygiene supplies, and referrals to campus and community-based resources, the Poly Pantry hopes to maximize student success.

The Pantry is available to all Broncos who feel they are in need. As a customer-choice pantry, individuals are empowered to shop for what they need and want, in order to meet their dietary needs. 

Pilot Re-Opening

ASI is excited to announce that on Tuesday, July 20, all CPP students in need will be able to do in-person shopping at the Poly Pantry’s temporary location inside of the Bronco Student Center, Ursa Major (BSC, Bldg. 35-2611) during a pilot reopening!

Appointments are scheduled for Tuesday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3-8 p.m., and will be available online at the ASI Portal beginning Tuesday, July 13.

While the Poly Pantry is a free service for CPP students, the goal is to support students in need. For example:

  • Are you worried your food might run out before you have money to buy more?
  • Do you find that healthy food options are out of your budget?
  • Are you cutting or skipping meals even if you are hungry?

If you are a CPP student and you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you should know that the Poly Pantry can support your needs at no cost.
