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.

The ASI Food Pantry operates  on donations from the community


The ASI Food Pantry operates almost entirely on donations from the community. You can drop off your donations M-F 9am – 4pm in the ASI Hot Spot (first floor of the University Union).

Please think of nutritional value when making a donation. The ASI Food Pantry would like to try and stay away from processed, high-sugar, and low-quality food items. Open and/or used items will not be accepted as we must remain in compliance with the county environmental management department.

Host a Food Drive

You can support struggling students in our community by collecting non-perishable donations at your office, church or community center. All Campus departments & community organizations are welcomed and encouraged to host a one-time or ongoing collection drive!

We can provide marketing assistance and collection bins for your food drive!

If interested in hosting a food drive, Please complete this online form and our Food Pantry Coordinator will be in touch within three business days regarding a donation bin drop off.

Please note, delivery of donation bins can take between 7-10 business days. If you would like to pick up your barrel, please make a note in the online form.
