Basic Needs

The Hub - Free for all enrolled students! 

The Basic Needs Hub serves as the on campus food pantry as well as a space for students to connect with resources to assist them with meeting their basic needs and to empower them to be successful, connected members of the student body and community at large.

Any enrolled student may visit The Hub to receive nonperishable grocery items, healthy produce, and grab and go snacks and prepared food. The Hub operates in partnership with the Food Bank of Monterey, CSUMB’s Associated Students, and Chartwells, the dining services provider.

Students can also receive drop-in CalFresh application assistance, farmers market vouchers, and information about nutrition, housing, and financial support programs at the Hub. 

Find The Hub in Building 12, Room 125
