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.
We are a proud member of the College and University Food Bank Alliance
