The PLU Pantry exists as a resource to serve students, staff, and faculty who are experiencing food insecurity in any way.
PLU Pantry Welcomes You
The Pantry is accessible to students, staff and faculty who have a valid PLU ID. Every person entering the Pantry must swipe in with ID. To request entry after regular business hours (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.), contact PLU Campus Safety at 253-535-7441 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Procedures outlining use, physical distancing and other COVID-19 protocols are posted on the Pantry door. Please govern yourself accordingly.
Donations & Support
The PLU Pantry is primarily stocked through a partnership with Northwest Harvest. We also accept donations at the Campus Ministry Office from community friends of canned meats, vegetables, fruits, and dry goods that are six months or more from expiration. In addition, your monetary donation of any amount is most appreciated. We use the money to purchase culturally specific foods and to support Pantry operations.
Northwest Harvest delivers to the Pantry on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month in the 9:00 a.m. to NOON time frame.
