Student Community Meals at UMass Amherst


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Meals limited! First come, first serve basis. Bring tupperware! I will bring containers for those who are unable.

These will be every Wednesday until May 9 (end of semester)! Please invite any UMass pals who struggle to afford or otherwise access food. 🌱

Please spread the word by sharing this event and the Need a Swipe? Got a Swipe? group page!

#Number1ForEveryone #EverybodyEats

Where is the food from?
The food is from Berkshire Dining Hall and is picked up by UMass Food Recovery Network volunteers including members of the Center for Education Policy & Advocacy.

Why is this event so late at night?
We pick up the leftover food from Berk when they switch over to late night at 9pm. We also wish we could get it earlier! Bring tupperware and you have a great lunch tomorrow. :)

Why does this end at 10pm?
This is when The Hatch closes and we want to be respectful to custodians trying to clear out the room.

Do I gotta stay and eat?
No! We'd love it if you stayed and met others dealing with food insecurity, but understand if it is too late to hang around long! Bring tupperware!! (Have I mentioned that?)

I'm doing work around food access and education affordability. How do I get involved?
Great question! The Food Access Coalition meets Fridays at 11am, and we welcome new members! 🌱
