Does the institution host a food bank, pantry, or equivalent resource focused on alleviating food insecurity, hunger and poverty among students?:
Yes

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

Food Pantry
The Food Pantry provides emergency nonperishable food and fresh produce to UC Berkeley students, staff, and faculty while they explore additional food security resources.

Students and staff are welcome to take as much as needed whenever needed while being mindful that it is a shared community resource for emergencies. The Pantry operates on a self-assessed need basis. There are no eligibility requirements and all you need is your Cal ID.

Basic Needs Center
The Basic Needs Center team is committed to fostering belonging and justice on the UC Berkeley campus through a robust model of prevention, intervention and emergency relief efforts. Our efforts aim to combat the structural drivers of basic needs insecurity such as rising income inequality, increasing cost of living, inadequate high school preparation, and more. Using a holistic and systematic approach, we target the different facets of basic needs insecurity on campus in order to consistently reduce the number of students that require emergency resources.
