What better way to start the holiday season than by giving back to our community? Join us as we prepare to kick off the annual UCLA Food Drive!

Hosted by UCLA Events & Transportation, the UCLA Food Drive will be collecting goods and funds from Nov. 14 to Dec. 15 to support the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and the UCLA Food Closet, a UCLA Community Programs Office initiative that provides struggling students with a helping hand. Collection bins will be provided by UCLA Events & Transportation and can be requested here.

Over the years, with assistance from the entire UCLA community, the UCLA Food Drive has collected over 45,000 pounds of food donations, which was given directly to underprivileged individuals and families. With our high goals set for this year, we encourage everyone to contribute what they can, as needs in and around the UCLA community have increased.

We need your help!
