Cal State LA has established multiple initiatives to address the needs of students struggling with food and housing security concerns. Issues of food and housing can have a profound impact on the health and wellbeing of our students and, as a direct corollary, on their academic success. Cal State LA offers a food pantry, emergency housing and financial assistance to support students’ progress toward graduation.
Students shouldn't have to stress over food security. The Food Pantry offers free groceries to currently-enrolled Cal State LA students so they can concentrate on their studies.
CalFresh is a nutrition assistance program that helps low-income individuals and families buy the food they need. CalFresh dollars help stretch a tight food budget and help many people afford to incorporate healthy foods like fruits and vegetables into their diets.
Cal State LA offers financial and housing assistance to students who are facing an emergency situation or crisis. This would include serious, unexpected circumstances beyond the student’s control (e.g. death in family, accident, fire, sudden loss of housing, medical crisis, etc.), which directly affect the student's ability to continue and be successful in school.
Your support can make a difference in the lives of struggling students and help us exapand our programs.
