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 either our Downtown or Tempe locations (weekend pop-up markets). Any ASU student is able to receive food from either location, regardless of the campus at which the student regularly attends.
