Our Purpose

The ASI Food Pantry exists to provide food and basic necessities to Sac State students with financial hardships or food insecurity, 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 provides food and toiletries for Sac State students with financial hardships who show a valid student OneCard. Students are allowed to come once a week and take 1 bag of pre-bagged food. Toiletries are available upon request and will be posted at the Pantry for students to select from!
