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?

Yes. Students without a OneCard might not be able to be served. 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.

If you are unable to afford a replacement, our Food Pantry Coordinator can connect you with a staff member at the Bursar’s Office who can set up a payment plan for you.

Do I need to bring a bag?

Yes. Although we are not able to physically use your bag to prepare your items, we recommend you bring a sturdy bag to put all your items in!

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:
