About

ASI was awarded grant funding from the California State University (CSU) One-Time Basic Needs Partnerships Grant Funding Opportunity (AB-74) to build the new kitchen. The facility will be operated as an extension of the ASI Beach Pantry and is a space for programs hosted in partnership with Basic Needs, Family and Consumer Sciences, Beach Balance and other campus partners.
