All donations to the AS Food Bank will go towards food purchases for distribution to students in need.
A $10 donation can feed a student for a week and $120 donation can feed a student for the quarter.
Your contribution will provide a student with:
1) nutritious food
2) a moment to relax and relieve stress
3) time to focus on school
4) an opportunity to reflect and plan
5) hope that a better day will come
Since our service began in April 2011, the AS Food Bank have serviced 3,500 students with 47,000 visits. In Spring 2012, the undergraduate and graduate students made the commitment to ensure food security and passed a fee initiative of $1.81 and $.80 respectively to institutionalize the AS Food Bank.
