Any Hungry Husky

An estimated 15-25% of college students do not get enough food due to affordability and other costs associated with a college education. Food insecurity negatively affects physical, mental and emotional health, making it difficult for people to perform well at school and work. Any Hungry Husky relieves this issue by providing nutritious, wholesome food to anyone in the UW community.

We aim to provide students, staff, and faculty access to no-cost food while providing a dignifying experience.

A number of divisions, departments, offices, and groups have supported and contributed to these campus-wide initiatives, including:

  • The VP Office of Student Life
  • The Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity/ Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center
  • Student Financial Aid
  • Student Veteran Life
  • UW Recreation
  • School of Social Work
  • The Graduate School
  • UW Retirement Association
  • Housing and Food Services
  • The HUB
  • UW Farm
