University casts a wide net to help hungry, homeless students

ASI Food Pantry Sacramento State, one of the nation’s most diverse universities, is proud to have students from across the socioeconomic spectrum – including students who face real-world challenges that, if not addressed, could hobble their ability to pursue their education and degrees.

For that reason, the University is at the forefront of helping students address roadblocks such as homelessness and hunger, providing a broad and strong safety net that is among the best in higher education.

“We’ve got it all, and we’re diligently, actively looking every day for any gaps we need to plug,” says Beth Lesen, assistant vice president for Student Affairs and dean of students. From food insecurity and housing instability to unexpected financial emergencies, as well as the need to acquire or improve money-management skills – challenges are met through numerous programs across the campus.

“Students who have their basic needs met and are connected to the appropriate services during their time of need can better focus on their academics and work toward a timely graduation,” case manager Danielle Munoz says.
