California State University – East Bay
Welcome Pioneers!

About the program

At various donation periods throughout the school year, students can donate extra meals at the dining hall registers, which are then distributed directly on students’ ID cards by Pioneers for hope.

Are you experiencing food insecurity on campus?
Students can make an appointment to one of HOPE Food pantries on Hayward and Concord East Bay campuses through BaySync or learn about many more resources here.
