The UCLA Food Drive, organized by UCLA Transportation, is now under way.

UCLA Food Drive underway

As we prepare to give thanks at this time of year for all we are grateful for, we should also think of those in our community who are in need. The UCLA Food Drive is collecting goods and funds to benefit both the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank and UCLA Food Closet.

In past years, the UCLA Food Drive has collected over 42,000 pounds of food donations for the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank to benefit individuals and families in need.

We are also collecting for the UCLA Food Closet, a UCLA Community Programs Office program that provides struggling students a helping hand. With so much need this year all around us, even in our UCLA community, we ask that everyone contribute what they can.

Participate by donating food, time, or money.
