Interested in helping out at the Cougar Pantry?

Unfortunately, we are not able to accept donations at this time due to our limited space and storage.
However, We are always looking for volunteers for our Monday produce distributions! This is where we
giveaway free fruits and veggies! You would be responsible for outreach and logistics!

Volunteer here!

The biggest way to help is spreading the word about this awesome resource! Remember to tell your
friends at CSUSM about the ASI Cougar Pantry!
