Dear Food Pantry Community,

We are working to make adjustments to WOU Food Pantry operations to ensure safety and compliance with Western Oregon University and statewide social distancing protocol in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check this site and our Facebook page periodically to stay updated.

Health officials across the state of Oregon have advised that all food pantries move from a shopping-style distribution to pre-made boxes. Please be aware that starting Monday, March 23 this pantry will change our distribution style to pre-made boxes.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, for the safety of yourself, volunteers, and our community, please stay home if you are feeling sick! If you cannot send a friend or family member to pick up food for you, call 503-838-8219 and we will work with you to find a solution.

We are sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience with us through this difficult time.

-Food Pantry Management

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.


Where is the Food Pantry?

The Food Pantry is back in the Oregon Military Academy building on the northeast corner of campus.

The entrance to the Food Pantry can be found on the southeast corner of the building. 


What is the Food Pantry?

The WOU Food Pantry is a student-run organization that provides free food, toiletries, and informational resources to anyone who stops by. We are here to support our campus and community by making sure everyone is cared for and no one goes hungry. 

We value your input!
