Committee for Improving Student Food Security
The Committee for Improving Student Food Security (CISFS) seeks to improve PSU students’ ability to access affordable, nutritious, culturally relevant food. This will be achieved through fostering community partnerships, increasing awareness, addressing barriers through policy advocacy, and using data to inform and build capacity for action.

FREE FOOD MARKET

The Free Food Market at PSU has given out over 250,000 lbs of food since April 2015!  We are the largest Free Food Market in Oregon. All are welcome, and volunteers are needed.
 
The next Free Food Market will be held on Monday, March 11th in the Park Blocks in front of Shattuck Hall.  Please see our Free Food Market page for more info.  Volunteers may sign up on this (click here) form.
