Yes

A brief description of the food bank, pantry, or equivalent resource:

Oh SNAP! Student Food Programs is a student-driven initiative. Their mission is to increase access to nutritious and culturally appropriate food for all Humboldt State University (HSU) students by engaging in campus and community partnerships and by raising awareness of food insecurity among our peers.

Oh SNAP! aims to provide students with basic necessities and connections to community resources. Services currently include a campus food pantry, a weekly stand with free fresh fruits and vegetables (during the growing season), CalFresh application assistance, connections to other local food resources, and outreach events.

Oh SNAP! provides CalFresh assistance to anyone who needs it, however the pantry and food redistribution services are for matriculated HSU students only.

Core Values:
-Access – access to good food is the right of every student on campus (and every human being).
-Equity – all students (humans) should have equal opportunities to access good food.
-Justice – food for all!
-Community engagement – Through local, state and national level partnerships, Oh SNAP! is working to build an equitable, community-driven campus food system.
