The Beaver Food Pantry is a pop-up pantry that distributes fresh produce and bread. 

This service is open to all ARC students, faculty, and staff. The Beaver Food Pantry was started in late Fall 2017 in collaboration with the Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services.

Distribution is on a first come, first served basis while supplies last.

The Beaver Food Pantry now has additional hours for students to pick up non-perishable food items on the days when we do not hold our pop-up distributions. The Beaver Food Pantry is housed within the HUB which is located in the Student Center, down the hall from the Center for Leadership and Development. Our hours will be Mondays 11am to 5pm, Tuesdays 8am to 12pm, Wednesdays 11am to 5pm and Thursdays 1pm to 7pm.

Students who visit our Food Pantry will receive a number of food items based on the number of people in their household. All you need is your W# and no one will be turned away!
