Overview Ryan Choi

Our Mission

The ASI Food Pantry exists to provide food and basic necessities to Sac State students with financial hardships and low food security, at no cost. In addition to helping alleviate hunger within our student community, the ASI Food Pantry aims to decrease the negative impact that low food security has 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

3. Bring a reusable bag for items

4. Fill out the New User Registration Form (once per academic year).

ASI Food Pantry Lockers: After Hours Pick-Up

Place your order here.

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. Please note that utilizing the lockers will count as your weekly visit.

  • Pick Up times are limited to the University Union’s hours.
  • The Lockers are located on the first floor of the University Union next between The Store and the ASI SEO Office.

Additional Resources

We have compiled a list of resources for students facing food insecurity. Check out our resource list.
