Food closet donations

The Community Programs Office Food Closet was created in 2009 for any UCLA student in need. It is a resource to nourish students through the difficult moments in their lives.


The purpose of the UCLA CPO Food Closet is to complement the food supply for any UCLA student who may be experiencing hunger and/or struggling to attain food due to financial hardships. The Food Closet accepts stock and checks as donations. Funds are used for the daily operations of the facility and program. Your donation will aid with the purchasing of fresh produce, canned goods, and toiletries.

  • Water bottles
