Basic Needs provides valuable resources to help students address food, housing, and/or financial insecurity.   

Our Programs Include:  

Warrior Food Pantry

The Warrior Food Pantry provides both perishable and non-perishable food items - as well as toiletries - at no cost to current students. Students can collect up to 10 items per week using their Warrior ID number.  

Food Distribution

The Food Distribution initiative is designed to offer support to current students in accessing food by providing them with a box of non-perishable food items at no cost. These distributions, held twice a month, are made possible thanks to the generous support of the California Faculty Association (CFA) and the United Samaritans Foundation.  


CalFresh is an invaluable nutrition assistance program dedicated to empowering students and families to acquire the nourishing food necessary for maintaining their health and well-being. Participants in CalFresh receive benefits electronically, conveniently loaded onto their personal Golden State Advantage electronic benefits transfer (EBT) cards. These cards, resembling regular debit cards, enable recipients to purchase groceries seamlessly at a wide array of participating grocery stores, discount chains, farmer’s markets, and local neighborhood stores. 

CalFresh Healthy Living

The CalFresh Healthy Living on College Campuses Project implements SNAP-Ed activities at 13 California State University (CSU) campuses targeting SNAP-Ed eligible students. Through cooking classes, social media promotions, outreach events and campus partnerships, we aim to create a culture on campuses where the healthy choice is the easy choice, and students feel confident in their ability to prepare nourishing meals and live active lifestyles. 

Campus Cares

The Campus Cares program is designed to render assistance to enrolled Stanislaus State students who are experiencing a personal crisis or an emergency situation. 

Temporary Housing

The temporary housing program offers enrolled students access to temporary on-campus housing through Housing & Residential Life or off-campus alternatives on a case-by-case basis. Students may unexpectedly face housing insecurity if they lack safe, stable, regular, and adequate housing. Signs of housing insecurity include living in shelters, parks, motels, or cars, or temporarily couch-surfing with others due to lack of alternative options. 

Basic Needs Allies

Students can get involved as a Basic Needs Ally. The Basic Needs Ally program raises awareness of the struggles faced by Warriors who are experiencing food and housing insecurity by destigmatizing the access of basic needs resources and educating the campus on the programs available to support students’ basic needs.
