Welcome to the UMASS Lowell Neighborhood Food Project !
We are excited to work with you to collect food and other goods for our food and resource insecure students.
Did you know that 35% of college students report having been food insecure during their college experience? That some of our students have to choose between food and textbooks? That there are over 58,000 self-identified homeless college students in the US?
The numbers are staggering, and are growing.
Starting this October #UCAN help by participating in the UMass Lowell Neighborhood Food Project! This is a voluntary & revolutionary way to collect food! It’s a donor drive and getting involved couldn’t be any easier. We have adopted a system that makes it easy for people to donate nonperishable food items or other needed goods.
Donations will go to our UMass Lowell Navigators Food Pantry located in University Crossing, Room 104 (near the Solution Center).
Each month, designated areas on campus will be assigned to collect up to 3 specific items to donate by the last Wednesday of each month beginning October 26, 2016.
