The Mission of Lift Up Vikes! is to offer a simple, dignified, and compassionate process through which CSU students are connected to resources that supplement nutritional and other basic human needs.Started in February 2016 as an expansion of the CSU Women’s Center food pantry, the program meets a real and growing need – during its first year, more than 400 students were assisted during 1,737 visits, including 82 minor children of student-parents. On average, 15 students are fed per day.
While maintaining confidentiality, Lift Up Vikes! provides those in need with fresh produce, meat and dairy, nonperishable food, personal care and household items, laundry facilities, a kitchen, lockers, and workshops on financial planning and other topics.
