The Basic Needs Center Food Pantry is an emergency relief program designed to meet the short-term food security needs of the UC Berkeley community, which includes all UC Berkeley students, staff, visiting scholars, student researchers, postdocs, and faculty who need food. During the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Food Pantry moved out of their 350 SF room to a larger, more open, yet temporary space. Soon after, they partnered with Peripheral Office and the CED Fabrication Shop to design and build a new dedicated Food Pantry to meet the growing needs of a pandemic pantry.
