Specific Objectives

  • Creating a safe space to distribute good quality and nutritious emergency food to current ASU students.
  • Creating and promoting a space on campus dedicated to food donation collection.
  • Collecting good quality and nutritious food items (donations) that may otherwise go to waste to enhance sustainability initiatives on campus.
  • Raising awareness around hunger issues, especially as experienced by low-income college students.
  • Encouraging student engagement to foster a sense of community, volunteerism and service to peers on campus.
  • Provide information about other resources offered on campus and in the community.
