The ASI Food Pantry exists to provide food and basic necessities
to Sac State students with financial hardships and food
insecurity, at no cost. In addition to helping alleviate hunger
within our student community, the ASI Food Pantry aims to
decrease the negative impact that food insecurities have on the
academic success of our students.
How it works
The ASI Food Pantry provides basic necessities such as:
non-perishables, fresh produce, and toiletries. The Pantry is a
shared resource made possible by donations from the community!
Students can visit the Pantry once per
week. To be eligible to utilize the ASI Food
Pantry, students must:
1. Be enrolled at Sac State
2. Bring One-Card or know student ID number
3. Bring own bag for items
4. Fill out the New User Registration Form (once a semester).
The Free Groceries Pop Up is a separate and
additional service of the ASI Food Pantry. In an effort 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. Stay tuned for Fall 2022
