Student Nutrition Access Center (SNAC)
Welcome to SNAC!
The Student Nutrition Access Center is the location of Utah State University's food pantry. Our mission is to assist any Aggie who experiences difficulty accessing nutritious food and personal care products. Patrons may receive assistance once per week, as needed, no questions asked.
Each Aggie may order once per week. If you have a spouse who has a spouse card they can order an additional order for your household using their A-number. If we are not meeting your needs we are happy to connect you to resources that assist you more.>
Ordering & Pickup
Order online Tuesdays & Wednesdays to pick up on your designated day during your time slot outside the doors of SNAC (TSC 332B).
Thursday and Friday is open for in person browsing only.
We do not have free parking for SNAC patrons, but if you can park in the Blue Premium lot near the TSC, make it up the stairs, grab your order, and make it back to your car in less than 10 minutes, you will not be charged for parking.
If you cannot pickup during the posted hours please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange a time for you to pick up your order.
Please let us know if there is an issue with a food item or what foods you'd like to see in stock.
Volunteer: Log into SNAC's subgroup page on AggiePulse, USU's new service database, to sign up for volunteer opportunities.
In addition local produce gleaning opportunities can be found on AggiePulse.
Monetary Donations: We have launched our 2021 AggieFunded campaign with a goal of $15,000! Donations are a great way to give to our cause and provide nutritious food for Aggies. Donate today!
Food Drives: We utilize most if not all food items. For a specific list of items we can utilize send us an email at email@example.com.
Canned and nonperishable food is donated by the Cache Community Food Pantry and the Utah Food Bank.
Fresh produce in the summer and fall comes from the Student Organic Farm, Cache Community Gleaning, and local farmers and gardeners.
Unsold bread, bagels, desserts, and other perishables are donated by USU Dining Services and Kneaders Bakery & Cafe.
Concerned about the safety of your food? Look no further, the Utah Food Bank created Safe Food Donation and General Consumption Guidelines as a resource.
