Campus Food Bank C-lot Distribution

For information about additional emergency food distribution (with social distancing), Thurston County Food Bank lists locations and hours, or you can reach them at (360) 352-8597.

The Campus Food Bank TCFB Satellite has created a drive-through Community Point of Distribution for Evergreen students and the wider community. This pop-up food bank site allows for distribution of food while minimizing contact and practicing social distancing. All food safety guidelines will be followed and staff and volunteers will wear masks and gloves to avoid transmission and exposure.

Where: The Evergreen State College, Parking Lot C

When: Every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month, 2 pm - 4 pm

  • The pop-up food bank site will run every Second and Fourth Tuesday except August 24th.
  • There will be vegan options available.
  • Walk-up services will also be available, but we encourage people to drive if possible due to the weight of the food boxes.

Can't make it there in person? No problem!

We do not require you to be there in person to access our resources. People can pick up food for other households. We encourage it. So, if you stop by and know of anyone who needs food, or you're someone not able to stop by, a friend or roommate can pick food up for you.

Are you a student with class schedule conflicts?

We can also help advocate for you with your faculty member about allowing you time off class to access the Food Bank. Faculty are generally very understanding and will make accommodations to be able to access resources. You can contact JC Wortham (jc.wortham@evergreen.edu) the Basic Needs Center and Food Bank Coordinator to assist you with this.

Other resources

The Basic Needs Advocacy Resource Center has a Shelf-Stable Food Pantry you can access as well as many other immediate resources. We also assist in advocating and connecting students with long-term assistance on- and off-campus. For more information and our appointment link visit our WordPress site.

If you have questions, please contact Ellen Shortt-Sanchez, Director of the Center for Community-Based Learning & Action (CCBLA), shorttse@evergreen.edu.

The Campus Food Bank TCFB Satellite Pop Up will provide food boxes/bags, pop up tents, safety equipment, and staffing and will operate as a self-contained production, with Evergreen student interns and volunteers.
