Since Aztecs Rock Hunger’s inception, the SDSU community has raised over $825,000 for the SDSU Economic Crisis Response Team, A.S. Food Pantry and the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank and a record-breaking $109,676 was raised in last year’s campaign. We strive to raise more to fight food and nutrition insecurity in our community. With 1 in 4 adults in San Diego County facing nutrition insecurity every day and 1 in 4 SDSU students using the A.S. Food Pantry, ARH strives to serve the hunger needs of our San Diego community.

As part of ARH, 20% of the monetary donations are donated directly to the SDSU Economic Crisis and Response Team (ECRT). ECRT is a university program that aims to bridge the gap in resources for students experiencing immediate food, housing, or unforeseen financial crises and during the 2022-23 academic year, ECRT assisted almost 2,000 students.

The other 80% of funds generated by ARH are used to stock the A.S. Food Pantry, with the remaining going directly to the Jacobs and Cushman San Diego Food Bank. Our on-campus food pantry distributes an average of over 100,000 pounds of food annually, including lots of fresh produce to SDSU students while providing additional resources and education on other programs that fight against food insecurity.

Thank you to all who have donated in the past to make ARH so successful in benefitting SDSU and the larger San Diego community. With your help, we can make a difference.
