Bruin Pantry Expansion

Working with campus facilities, the pantry expansion to 020 has been again delayed.  To simplify pickup during our extended closure, Bruin Pantry will be open in its old location (015) on Tuesday, January 31 from 2-5pm & Wednesday, February 1 from 9am-1pm for in-person pick-up.  Students, staff, and faculty may continue to request pre-packaged bags for pickup on Thursday, February 2 & Friday, February 3 using this form. South City Campus, Taylorsville Redwood, and West Valley Center pantries remain well-stocked and operating with regular hours throughout our expansion.  We are deeply appreciative for your patience during these unforeseen challenges and apologize immensely for the impact to our community.  We will continue to share updates via the Bruin Pantry newsletter and on the Thayne Center's Instagram.
