Just two weeks into our campaign to raise funds for UCI’s FRESH Needs Hub and we are thrilled to have reached our first $5,000 goal, unlocking a matching gift of $5,000 from a generous anonymous donor!

We still have a ways to go to reach our $15,000 goal by the end of November. 

You can continue to help us reach our goal by sharing our campaign ( across your social media networks and through email to your friends and colleagues. 

You are also welcome to drop off canned goods and other non-perishables to Humanities Core, Humanities Commons, and Undergraduate Studies through the end of November:
