If you are a Chico State student who has been displaced or have been impacted by the Camp Fire please fill out the Application for Assistance(opens in new window). We also encourage you to apply for the Wildcats Rise Fire Recovery Fund Grants and check out additional grant and loan resources available on that page through financial aid.

The Pantry is open for limited hours, 11:00AM-3:00PM, Monday-Wednesday, November 19-21. Students are encouraged to stop by SSC 196 if they need N95 masks, food support or any basic need assistance.

You are invited to attend the Wildcats Rise Care and Resources Center,  Monday, November 19, 8:30AM-4PM, BMU Auditorium to talk directly with campus student service resource, aid and employement representatives and advisors.


The Chico State Basic Needs Project is a collaborative effort of campus and community-based programs with the goal to improve student success through the provision of supplemental food, nutritious meals, CalFresh USDA SNAP food benefit assistance, research-based education, emergency housing, emergency grants and referral services for students experiencing food insecurity, hunger, displacement, homelessness and poverty.
