Zot Out Hunger: Crowdfunding Campaign

Thank you so much for thinking of supporting our students in need. Below are some ways the UCI and local community can support. 

We accept monetary support for the pantry via our UCI Foundation account. To donate please visit:

Our student leaders are also running a crowdfunding campsign to raise funds for the Emergency Meal Swipe Program, which awards our neediest students access to full meals at our Dining Commons via an application process. The campaign started recently and will run until December 27th. Here's the link to the campaign donation portal:

September 27th - December 27th 
Contribute to our efforts as we push to eradicate food insecurity on our campus. Your assistance will help us provide our students with fresh, nutritious meals to contribute to their success on campus. By raising $10,000, it will help us distribute up to about 1,000 meals.
During the 2017-2018 Fall Quarter, "The Swipe Squad" will be working at making food insecurity a thing of the past, by raising money to give students access to the dining commons on campus. "The Swipe Squad" is a collaboration of the ASUCI Food Security Co-Commissioners and the FRESH Basic Needs Hub team. Together, we have been able to start a new initative called Zot Out Hunger. 
Zot Out Hunger is a project that issues swipes to students in need. Below are last year's statistics on student food insecurity solely on our campus at UCI. 
We want to change these statistics, so that every student on campus can concentrate on their own student success without worrying about where their next meal is coming from.
