ASI Food Pantry

Overview

Our Mission

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.

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!

ASI Food Pantry Lockers: After Hours Pick-Up

We are happy to announce that we now have ASI Food Pantry Lockers for After Hours pick up! The purpose of these lockers is to increase accessibility to the ASI Food Pantry by allowing students to pick up food outside of the Food Pantry’s regular hours. We recognize how limited a student’s availability can be and this is a great option for students with a busy schedule!

  • Pick up will be available 5pm – until 12pm the following date
  • The Lockers are located on the first floor of the University Union next between The Store and the ASI Hotspot.  
  • After Hours Pick Up times are also limited to the University Unions hours
  • If you need to pick up on the weekend, sign up for a Friday Date

The deadline to sign up for a pick-up with the Lockers will be 1 day before the date you are considering. You can sign up to 7 days before as well.
