Food Security grants

The Food Security grant is available to help students meet short-term, immediate needs. The grant is a $100 allotment on a Husky card intended for emergency assistance to purchase food from a UW Housing & Food Services facility. Eligibility is limited to currently enrolled students who have exhausted other funding options, including student loans, and have completed FAFSA or WASFA. Applicants will also talk with a financial aid counselor to see how they can help address long-term food security needs.

Who doesn’t love fresh vegetables and herbs that are grown locally and in a sustainable way? UW students who are on campus in the summer have the opportunity to participate in a mini-CSA program where clients receive a subsidized share of produce weekly from the Farm. The cost to participate is $5/week for 3 OR 6-week sessions. This program is currently closed and is being reevaluated for 2019. If you would like to join UW Farm’s regular CSA program, please sign up here.
