Sac State Food Pantry a model for fighting student hunger
June 27, 2016 by Anita Fitzhugh
A recent CSU conference addressing student hunger and homelessness is leading to the creation of more campus-based intervention programs such as the ASI Food Pantry at Sac State.
Currently, Sac State is one of 11 CSU campuses with a program or pantry in place to help provide hunger relief to students in need. In fact, the ASI Food Pantry is one of the priorities identified by the President's Circle giving society, a growing number of community members dedicated to joining President Robert S. Nelsen in supporting students and creating a stronger campus community.
