Any Hungry Husky relies on volunteers who are committed to ensuring every community member has access to healthy and wholesome food. Volunteers work with customers, stock shelves and support campus food drives.

Relieving food insecurity

In the US, an estimated 15-25% of college students do not get enough food due to 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.

Food security grant

If you are in urgent need of food you can apply for a Food Security Grant and receive $100 on your Husky Card to be used at on campus dining locations and markets.


UW Food Alert – coming soon!

Get texts or emails about extra food left over after a campus event. When hosts have leftover food, they’ll send a notification about what food is available, where and when. Event hosts who are interested should contact ferris3@uw.edu. Students who want to receive notifications can sign up when the tool is released for beta testing in autumn 2019.
