ASI Cougar Pantry Ribbon Cutting

NOVEMBER 18, 2021 | 5 PM | COMMONS 104

The ASI Cougar Pantry began when the ASI Board of Directors proposed a resolution for an on-campus food pantry. We first launched the Bite Out Hunger campaign to educate the campus about food insecurity and to ask our campus partners to help us combat this issue. Together, the CSUSM community donated over 600 lbs of food to help us stock our pop-up pantry! We first opened the doors to our 700ish sq foot location in 2019 and now we're inviting everyone out to celebrate opening the doors of our new, 1,400 sq foot location!
