Stock UP

Welcome to Stock UP!

Stock UP is DIP’s pop-up food pantry and is meant for all students, staff, and faculty at the University of Portland. Founded at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, this pantry is meant to begin to meet the need and want of access to free fresh produce, non-perishables, and other hygiene supplies to the community.  

Dates for Stock UP

Stock UP will be held three times in Spring 2023 at 5516 N. Willamette Blvd from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM.  

Tentatively scheduled for:  

Week of 2.6

Week of 4.10

Please continue to check back for specific dates!
