The Associated Students of Cascades Campus is proud to address food insecurity and basic living need within the OSU-Cascades community by offering free food pantry bags and safer living kits to all students, staff, and faculty. During the coronavirus pandemic, we are offering custom food bags and Safer Living Kits for pick-up in the Student Life office on the first floor of the OSU-Cascades Residence Hall.

What is SNAP? SNAP is the acronym for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program offered through the Department of Human Services (DHS). The average one-person household receives $194/month in Electronic Benefits Transfer. In Oregon, EBT is loaded onto the Oregon Trail Card. The Oregon Trail Card acts like a debit card that can be used to purchase food at grocery stores, convenience stores, and farmers markets.
The ASCC Food Pantry exists primarily to support students experiencing a lack of access to food, poverty, and food insecurity. We have options for vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free diets as well as we understand these types of food may be out of a college student's budget. We also have a variety of self-care items. Students and non-students are welcome, we serve everyone!
