The UW Food Pantry
Located in Poplar Hall, our entrance is on the north side of the building at Brooklyn and 41st.

The UW Food Pantry provides food assistance to students, staff, and faculty who for whatever reason are having a hard time putting food on their plate.  It could be the result of a short-term disruption in your finances, a food desert in your community, or a lack of access to other financial assistance.  If you are making a choice between the food you need to sustain a healthy life and other pressing priorities we call this experience food insecurity.

University Food Bank
For 32 years, the University District Food Bank has helped prevent hunger in northeast Seattle neighborhoods. The food bank operates a walk-in food bank offering food, toiletries, baby formula, diapers and pet food to area residents.

For more than 40 years, SNAP has served as the foundation of America’s national nutrition safety net. It is the first line of defense against hunger and is a powerful tool for improving nutrition among low-income people.

Benefits come to the household via electronic debit cards, known as Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards which can be used in more than 246,000 approved retail stores nationwide to purchase food.

To get SNAP benefits, households must meet certain tests, including resource and income tests:

  • Resources
  • Income
  • Deductions
  • Employment Requirements
  • Special Rules for Elderly or Disabled
  • Immigrant Eligibility
