Donations & Volunteering

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 almost entirely on donations from the community. We also need support from student volunteers to keep the Pantry stocked and running smoothly. Below you will find opportunities to give back and support the Pantry.


If you are an individual or group looking for community service hours, the ASI Food Pantry would love to have your help! This particular sign up form is for “In-Pantry” volunteer opportunities.


If you would like to host a food drive please contact Madison Hall at ateamserviceevents@csus.edu,
