Food Pantry

The ASI Food Pantry exists to provide food and basic necessities to Sac State students in need at no cost. In addition to helping alleviate hunger within our student community, the ASI Food Pantry aims to decrease the impact that food insecurities have on the academic success of our students.

The ASI Food Pantry can provide food and toiletries for Sac State students with financial hardships who show a valid student OneCard. Each student will be allowed to visit the ASI Food Pantry once per week. Students are allowed to take a variety of items based on the point system below.
