Basic Needs

FRESH Volunteer Program

Section 1

45% of UCI students report to be experiencing food insecurity and 5% report to be experiencing housing insecurity. Help us make UCI a basic needs-secure campus and provide every student the ability to reach their goals!
Due to COVID-19, we have reduced our pantry distributions to observe exposure to our students and staff. We now hold food box distributions every other week for the month of July and will hold them weekly for the month of August. We have limited volunteer opportunities during these distributions. If you're interested in volunteering, please contact Janine Algabre at so you may receive timely volunteer updates.
