Since everyone is in midterm mode, I thought I would use this opportunity to help detangle a little bit. This blog is going to tell you where you can find free food around campus.
So on Monday, USG hosted it new Mobile Market where students and everyone in the community could come and get free food. It started at 11AM and went on until 1PM. If you were unlucky like me, you had class from 11AM-12:15AM (not to mention the exam waiting for me in that class). However, after class, I was still able to pick up some food. This is my second time doing Mobile Market, and there is always so much food left that I can still pick up something for myself. This Monday, I walked away with yogurt (which tasted awesome), potatoes, and water. I remember that the last time there was the Mobile Market, I walked away with 3 boxes of Almond Milk! It was truly amazing. This opportunity only happens on the 4th Monday of every month, so make sure to check it out. It happens outside at Lot 5, and there is always so much in store. All you have to do is bring a bring (or your car trunk even).
But what can you do when you are hungry right now, and it is not the 4th Monday of the month? Then there is Grover Essentials. Grover Essentials is a food pantry where students can pack food for themselves. All you have to do is go to CSEF in the SAS suite and tell them that you want to do Grover Essentials. They will show you where the pantry is, and you can stock up on food for the whole week. Students can use this service once a week, and guess what, you do not need to bring a bag. They provide you with bags. So, if you ever feel hungry or think that the cafeteria food is a little pricy, stop by either Mobile Market or CSEF for Grover Essentials, and they will happily fill your tummy.
I personally do Grover Essentials, and I have walked away with so much food. Last time, I walked away with the family size Honey Bunches of Oats Almond cereal, fruit cups, water, and other food materials. I seriously could not stop smiling knowing that my food was covered for the whole week.
Another place where you can find free food is in the USG WEEKLY. Please read those because there are several opportunities for you to be a part of something on campus, and the plus is that there is always food. So make sure to check those out.
So now that you know where you can find free food, I hope you utilize these services to the fullest.
