The ASI Beach Pantry operates as the official food pantry for Long Beach State students. The pantry provides non-perishable food items for students in need. An initiative spanning two ASI executive administrations, ASI Vice President Logan Vournas spearheaded the food pantry project into fruition in fall 2016. Also housed in the Beach Pantry will be the Student Swap Shop program, aimed at providing students with the opportunity to swap unneeded or old school supplies, like books, notebooks and other items essential to education.
