Boxer FoodShare

The Boxer FoodShare offers free food to everyone in the Pacific University community; this includes both graduate and undergraduate students, staff, and faculty.

We also have a limited supply of hygiene products and recipe cards. 

Location and Hours of Operation

FoodShare is located on the Forest Grove campus in Scott Hall, room 216. We offer staffed hours if you want to interact with student volunteers, ask questions, or learn more about SNAP benefits. We also have a key access code, so that users can shop in privacy. We want everyone to feel comfortable and welcomed.  

Address: 2043 College Way Forest Grove, OR 97116 

How to Access

Simply stop by our location in Forest Grove during building hours. We ask users to limit their shopping to six items per visit. 

Engage

Boxer FoodShare has opportunities for student, staff, and faculty engagement. We have academic placements for practicums and internships, and are grateful for volunteers. Our stock of food is primarily dependent on donations. If you are interested in partnering with us to collect donations (food or monetary), please see our guidelines on nutrition and donations here. Individual donations are always accepted, and can be brought to Scott Hall. 

If you are interested in helping out, or have questions, please stop by the Center for a Sustainable Society, or email Michelle Larkins michelle.larkins@pacificu.edu
