The Triton Food Pantry helps support wellness and academic success among all UC San Diego students. The Triton Food Pantry arose as a response to survey data demonstrating that approximately 25% of UC San Diego students skip meals somewhat to very often in order to save money (UCUES, 2014). Staff and student leaders felt this was unacceptable, and thus the concept of a Triton Food Pantry was quickly developed. The pantry opened winter quarter during the 2014-2015 academic year to help combat food insecurity and malnutrition. We want students to know they have a free and discreet service they are able to utilize without judgment or discrimination. The Triton Food Pantry strives to work towards serving students in need of food. This service is supported by Associated Students UC San Diego.
