Who we are
The Pitchfork Pantry is a student-run food pantry that serves ALL ASU students. The Pitchfork Pantry serves to fight food insecurity and promote well-being, sustainability and food recovery. We provide packages containing a variety of non-perishable foods and toiletries.
How students can receive support
All current ASU students are eligible to receive assistance. Students must sign up for a package through the below button every time they visit any of our locations. Any ASU student is able to receive food from any location, regardless of the campus at which the student regularly attends.
In addition to our Downtown Pantry and our Tempe weekend pop-up markets, students can now also go to designated UASP tutoring centers on the Downtown Phoenix, Polytechnic, West, and Tempe campuses to pick up a bag of non-perishable food items.
