ASA FOOD PANTRY
This is a free supplementary non-perishable food hamper meant to replace 25% to 35% of food costs for students, so their money can be spent on other bills (rent, tuition, etc.). Currently food hampers are being distributed once a month, and registration and applications are open to all current Augustana Students with a valid One Card.
A typical hamper contains:
Canned or dry soup (6)
Chunky soup (3)
Canned fruit (2)
Canned black beans (2)
Canned chick peas (2)
Dry pasta and Rice (2)
KD, Raman, Sidekicks (6)

$25 grocery card
You will be allowed up to 4 substitutions when you register.
