ASUCD Pantry at Davis is a student-run food closet housed in the basement of Lower Freeborn, Room 21. It exists to provide food and basic essentials to UC Davis students, and to ensure that no student will be forced to choose between food and college costs. Items are distributed on a point system, and students can receive up to 3 points worth of items per day. The result of a collaboration between ASUCD, the Community Advising Network under Counseling and Psychological Services, and the Office of the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs, The Pantry runs primarily on donations from the campus community and various food banks around Yolo County. It is open to any student with a valid UC Davis Aggie Card. The distribution is anonymous, and staff members do not record any information about students.
