Presidents United to Solve Hunger

Support Presidents United to Solve Hunger (PUSH)

No academic program is effective if a student is hungry or homeless. As a participant in the Presidents United to Solve Hunger (PUSH) initiative, Central cares for students who are homeless or hungry by responding to students in emergency situations and providing the vital resources that students need to succeed.

Student Success

If you are interested in supporting hungry CWU students and promoting student success, please consider donating to the PUSH Fund, with all proceeds going toward students with food insecurities. As one program advocate shared, "It's not enough to provide a scholarship that covers tuition. A hungry student cannot learn effectively. We have to feed the body before we feed the mind."

How to Give

Presidents United to Solve Hunger PUSH Fund—This fund works to connect students and other members of our campus community in need of basic resources with food, shelter, clothing, and more. Your support plays a critical role in the success of PUSH on the CWU campus, in the community, and will help students thrive and grow.

This program is under development. If you need immediate assistance check the resources listed under campus resources or community resources, or contact the farm manager to see if there is food available at the Wildcat Neighborhood Farm.

Take what you need, leave what you can.

PUSH maintains pantries across campus for students to access food resources. You can pick up items at any PUSH Pantry location, which are open during building hours. Items may also be donated at any pantry location. Please donate only unopened items. See our donate page for a list of suggested items.
