UC Merced believes that students should not go hungry. The Bobcat Pantry provides access to nutritious and healthy food for all graduate and undergraduate students. We promote sustainable practices and a holistic approach to a healthy and nutrition-conscious lifestyle. Student involvement and leadership provides the basis for the pantry operations and services.
The Bobcat Panty is open to all currently enrolled UC Merced undergraduate and graduate students. Please bring your CatCard to access this resource. The Bobcat Pantry Grocery Pick-Up form must be filled out prior to visiting the pantry. If you are a parent or caretaker of a child under the age of 6 please reach out to the Food Distribution Coordinator to request any accommodations. The team will be able to provide additional food support based on available inventory.
Pantry will be closed during the following days:
- Winter break closure effective December 2 - until Spring 2023
- Spring 2023 operation dates to be announced
