Food Pantry & Free Groceries
We are very pleased to announce that our Food Pantry has officially re‑opened!
Until further notice, our food pantry will only serve students and will operate by appointment only. Due to capacity issues, we are not able to serve community members or drop‑ins at this time.
The Wednesday Drive‑thru Grocery Distribution will continue to operate open to the public until further notice. The food pantry modality is an effort to prioritize student needs and flexibility for grocery pick-up on our campus.
Food Pantry Details
- Space is limited (please do your best to make it to your appointment)
- No ID required. A car is not required.
- Groceries will be pre-bagged (no substitutions at pick up)
- Items vary, but typically can include fruit, vegetables, canned goods, dry goods, dairy, meat and snacks (bags can be heavy)
- This will not affect your food grant or financial aid in any way
- An online order form and appointment are required (no drop‑ins)
Appointments are available Monday-Friday: students can book one up to 2 weeks in advance.
We invite you to provide your feedback within the order form or to contact the SparkPoint Front Office at 650-738-7035 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or suggestions.
