Mustang Meal Share

The Mustang Meal Share program supports students on campus who are experiencing food insecurity by creating an avenue for students to donate meals from their dining plan. As part of the university’s Basic Needs Initiative, Mustang Meal Share allows any freshmen with a dining plan to donate up to 10 meals per academic year to help ensure that every student has access to nutritious meals each day so they can stay focused on their studies and success.



The Food Pantry is a part of the Cal Poly Hunger Program which ensures that all students have access to nutritious meals every day in order to stay focused on their success at Cal Poly. The Food Pantry is a short-term service that is here to assist students who are experiencing food insecurity due to a financial struggle. Thanks to our generous donors, students can choose from a wide variety of packages and canned foods, frozen meals, and personal hygiene products. Health Education can also connect students with other resources if their needs are more demanding.


Cal Fresh

College can be difficult enough without having to consistently worry about when or what your next meal will be.  Cal Fresh Outreach is an on campus resource most commonly associated with the Cal Poly Hunger Program. Our goal is help address the symptoms of food insecurity on our campus by helping students apply for a federally funded program that allows them to receive financial assistance for purchasing food. Qualifying students receive an average of $150 which can be used at grocery stores and participating Farmer's Market to buy groceries.
