Eastern Washington University On-Campus Student Food Pantry

Cheney, WA has a poverty rate of 30.9%, and of that population 36.8% are between the ages of 18-24. The Eastern Washington University Hunger & Homelessness Outreach Team (HHOT), in partnership with other university departments, assessed student food needs on campus and found that 43% of students surveyed have gone without food while attending EWU, and that 87% believe that an on-campus food pantry should be available for students. Thus, we are currently in the process of exploring an on-campus food pantry options where food insecure students can easily access healthy and nutritious food items not normally available.
