Bring Your OneCard & a Reusable Bag

Frequently Asked Questions


The ASI Food Pantry can provide weekly food and toiletries for Sac State students with financial hardships. 

Do I need to have my OneCard?

Not necessarily, but you must know your student ID # so we can check you in. If you do not know your student ID number, you can access it on your MySacState Student Page. Please note it down so you can use the Pantry.

 If you are a currently enrolled student who has permanently misplaced your ID card, please go to the Bursar’s Office in Lassen Hall for a replacement.

Do I need to bring a bag?

Yes! We do not provide bags at the ASI Food Pantry, please bring your own bag. 

What about food expiration dates?

Once a product is past code date, many manufacturers donate it to food banks as the food is still safe to eat. Food manufacturers use different date codes to ensure that consumers receive their product at peak quality.

Use this reference to learn the shelf life of food products or how long these foods are good past the code date:
