The Student Cupboard is a free food and hygiene pantry for current Fresno State students. 

How it Works

Steps 1, 2, 3Step 1:

When you come into the Student Cupboard, show your Fresno State ID card. You will need this when you check out.

Step 2: 
Grab a basket and do your shopping. We allow you to take one of each item of your choice. Fresh fruits and vegetables are always unlimited. 

Step 3: 
When you are done shopping, head to the front desk to check out. Your first visit we will provide you a free Fresno State reusable bag. Bring this with you, or any other bag, when you shop to pack your groceries in.

Where is the Student Cupboard Located?

Student Cupboard location

The Student Cupboard is located in Industrial Technology, room 144. We are on the corner of Barstow and Jackson. Parking is available in P20 across the street from the Student Cupboard with a semester parking permit, or in P21 at the meters. The meters accept coin as well as credit card. 

If you're dropping off a donation, please call the Student Cupboard at 559.278.6621 and someone can meet you in the back of the building to collect your donation so you don't have to pay to park.

If you're a non-student volunteering and in need of a parking permit, please contact the Student Cupboard before coming in.
