2014 UCLA Food Drive Oct 27 - Dec 12

Yes We Can! "TACKLE HUNGER"Food Drive Oct. 27 - Dec 12

The 2014 UCLA Food Drive is collecting goods and funds for the UCLA Food Closet and the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. In previous years, we have collected over 42,000 pounds of food donations to benefit individuals and families in need. With so much need this year in and around the UCLA community, we ask that everyone contribute what they can.

The 2014 UCLA Food Drive will run from October 27 – December 12. Join us in showing that the UCLA community cares about the people and programs where we live and work. Please donate funds or food to help less fortunate community members and neighbors this holiday season.
