Food Pantry

The ASI Food Pantry exists to provide food and basic necessities at no cost to Sac State students in need. The Food Pantry aims to decrease the impact that food insecurities have on the academic success of Sac State students. It is increasingly challenging for students to juggle the costs of living while working to obtain their degree. Many students are finding themselves choosing between basic essentials such as food and basic toiletries and the required costs of tuition, fees, and books. The ASI Food Pantry helps to alleviate hunger within our student community.

Pop Up Food Pantry

The Pop Up Pantry is a service of the ASI Food Pantry. In an attempt to provide healthier eating options, ASI has partnered with the Central Downtown Food Basket to distribute fresh produce at no cost to Sac State students in need.

All events will take place on Mondays from 10:30am – 1:30pm in front of The WELL
