Since the launch of the UC Global Food Initiative in 2015, UC San Diego has taken strategic action to ensure students have access to a variety of resources to meet their Basic Needs.

We are carrying out a charge of priorities set for Basic Needs security so that each UC San Diego student has the opportunity to focus on their academic excellence. Basic Needs refers to the most essential resources required to thrive as a human being which includes access to nutritious food, stable housing, and financial resources.

As a passionate campus community ally, it is our highest goal to serve students with respect, offer referrals to on and off campus resources based on their Basic Needs, to increase accessibility to food, housing, and financial resources.
