Other Resources:

Aggie Food ConnectionA comprehensive resource for UC Davis information, resources and services pertaining to food security and nutrition. The Aggie Food Connection connects the UC Davis student population with easy, immediate and confidential UC Davis food resources while working to overcome stigma associated with needing help. Other campus and community members can use this website to learn about available resources in the Davis area.

University of California Global Food Initiative: A UC-wide effort to address how to address one of the critical issues of our time: how to sustainably and nutritiously feed a world population expected to reach eight billion by 2025. The initiative aligns the university’s research, outreach and operations in a sustained effort to develop, demonstrate and export solutions — throughout California, the United States and the world — for food security, health and sustainability.

University of California Student Food Access and Security SurveyTo better gauge the food security of its students, UC administered an online survey in spring 2015 to a randomly selected sample of students from all UC campuses. According to the survey, 19 percent of UC students indicated they had “very low” food security, which the USDA defines as experiencing reduced food intake at times due to limited resources. An additional 23 percent were characterized as having “low” food security, defined by the USDA as reduced quality, variety or desirability of diet, with little or no indication of reduced food intake.
