Our Mission

The WOU Food Pantry’s mission is to fight to end hunger in our community, by providing access to food and resources that promote health and success.


Our Vision

We envision Western Oregon University as an informed and compassionate community, committed to reducing food insecurity and its effects. We hope for the WOU community to see the Pantry as a stigma-free, inviting, and supportive resource for those in need. We strive to show support for the Monmouth/Independence community and provide WOU students with opportunities to experience the value of service through volunteering to actively serve their community.
