The Amendola Family Student Cupboard

 

The Amendola Family Student Cupboard is a free food and hygiene pantry for current Fresno State students. Students are able to choose from a variety of perishable and non-perishable items to take home to cook. Hygiene packs are distributed the third Wednesday and Thursday of the month. 

Visiting The Amendola Family Student Cupboard is a simple process.  When you come to The Amendola Family Student Cupboard, show your Fresno State ID card at the front door and let us know how many people you are sharing the food with. We will provide you with a pre-packaged box of items and offer you extras that we have available for the day. 

Before coming to campus and The Amendola Family Student Cupboard, please be sure to complete the Daily Health Screening available on the Fresno State homepage. Don't forget to wear your face mask or face covering that covers both your mouth and nose when you come to campus.

Semester operating hours are as follows:

  • Monday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Thursday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Amendola Family Student Cupboard is open when campus is open and close during campus holiday closures. 

The Amendola Family 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.

The Amendola Family Student Cupboard is primarily funded by monetary donations. We also accept food and hygiene donations as long as items are not expired or past a best by date. 

The Amendola Family Student Cupboard is open to all currently enrolled Fresno State students. We do not require students to provide proof of needing food or complete any paperwork to receive it.

We understand that not all students are able to make it to The Amendola Family Student Cupboard right now because they are not in the area. Here are a few different resources that are available to you:

At this time, we are only allowing essential employees on campus and therefore have put all volunteer opportunities for the semester on hold. When we are able to bring back volunteer opportunities, we will let you know. If you have questions, please contact Jessica Medina at jemedina@csufresno.edu.
