Nourish Food Pantry
Established in 2019, Nourish at CA House is a radical intracommunity food pantry system designed to address food insecurity among university students in the Davis community by providing access to fresh, nutritious, and well-balanced groceries.
The Nourish Pantry is open to all residents of CA House’s Multi-faith Living Community residents and the Davis student community.
The pantry is accessible by key code. Please email Lauren@cahouse.org or text 530-746-8196 to arrange for the code and/or a time to pick-up items.
Unlike most pantry systems, Nourish provides an advanced level of personal choice, highly-attenuated to the needs of individual community members. Short term goals of this program are:
• Reducing social barriers to food pantry use by eliminating the registration systems and quantity limits common to other food pantries
• Increasing students’ access to fresh produce through weekly produce pick-up times
• Establishing a low-waste, environmentally-sustainable pantry by implementing a system of bulk staples and reusable containers
We’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our community partners who help make the Nourish Pantry possible including the California-Nevada Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, Yolo Food Bank, and Davis Co-op.
