What is R’Pantry?

R’Pantry is a direct response to the need among students for more resources to fight food insecurity – the lack of nutritious food. R’ Pantry aims to:

  • Provide emergency nonperishable food to UC Riverside students in need
  • Connect students to on- and off-campus food resources
  • Improve the health and well-being of students

Students are having an increasingly difficult time juggling the rising costs of living, eating, and obtaining a university degree. Nobody should have to choose between these essentials. R’Pantry will provide emergency relief so students can complete and obtain their degrees from UCR without worry or fear from hunger.

R’Pantry is part of the campus-wide food security program, and is a partnership between ASUCR (Associated Students of UCR), Division of Student Affairs, Feeding America, and the UC Global Food Initiative.
