SNAC is supported by the AmeriCorps program of the Corporation for National and Community Service

In 2010, a small group of students concerned about their peers' access to food came together to found the Student Nutrition Access Center (SNAC). From SNAC's humble beginnings in a trailer at the former USU Trailer Court, to a single metal cabinet, to the pantry that it is today, students have invested countless hours and a lot of energy to respond to the nutritional needs of other USU students.  Today, SNAC is located in TSC 333.

Currently, SNAC offers the following items free of charge to USU students with a USU ID card:

- Canned and boxed food donated by the Cache Community Food Pantry

- Recovered bread, bagels, pastries, yogurt parfaits, hummus cups, donuts donated by USU Dining Services

- Fresh vegetables from the USU Student Organic Farm and the Utah Conservation Corps

There are many ways to volunteer!

1. Volunteer to help staff the SNAC pantry. Volunteers keep the pantry tidy, scan SNAC patrons' ID cards, and answer questions.

2. Bring your friends and volunteer at USU's largest, month-long food drive, Stuff-a-Bus!  Every Monday night in November students board Aggie Shuttles and go to a designated neighborhood to pick up food donations from community members. All the food collected goes to the Cache Community Food Pantry.

3. Help USU Food Recovery gather unsold food from USU Dining locations every morning. These volunteers then sort and repackage the recovered food so students can conveniently take bread and refrigerator items home.
