2011 UCLA Food DriveThe UCLA Food Drive is in full swing for the holiday season! You can maximize your impact by making a tax-deductible donation online at our Virtual Food Drive. Each dollar donated results in five dollars worth of food and product that the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank will distribute to families in need. Help us reach our $10,000 goal and donate now!

If you would rather donate food, containers are in place all over campus and ready for your contributions. We are collecting items for the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank and the UCLA Food Closet. The Food Closet is a UCLA Community Programs Office program that provides struggling students a helping hand.

Once you donate, go to our Facebook page and swap out your profile image for our "I Donated" badge to encourage your friends to donate, too.
