Free Food Market
The Free Food Market is a partnership between the CISFS and the Oregon Food Bank that brings FREE fresh produce, and other food items to PSU students and the greater PSU community. This partnership is an effort to increase student access to healthy food options and to reduce student food insecurity.

Free Food Market is open to everybody. All PSU students, faculty, staff, as well as community members.
In the interest of equity and to reduce wait time for our patrons, we use a "lottery" system.
Quantities per-person of each item depends on how much of each food type is delivered. Quantities may be limited.
BRING YOUR REUSABLE SHOPPING BAG. Bags are not supplied and items can get heavy.
Free Food Market is every month throughout the year, rain or shine. We operate out-of-doors with limited areas of shade/cover. Patrons should be prepared with appropriate protective clothing appropriate for Portland weather.
In rare occasions of severe inclement weather, the Free Food Market will be closed. These conditions include:
Volunteering at Free Food Market is a great way to fulfill volunteer requirements for courses, student conduct sanctions, corporate/organizational community engagement projects, and more.
