Food Resources Available to Students

You can’t learn if you are hungry.
Check out these great food resources this semester:
 
Mobile market. 
This market-on-a-bus is available once per month this semester and is located at the Student Union. It offers affordable and fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy, grains and other high-quality groceries. Students can pay with cash, card or EBT card (SNAP benefits). The market will be open on the south side of Memorial Union and will run for two hours each time on the following Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.:
·        Feb. 2
·        March 2
·        April 6
 
Boxed, prepared meals to-go. 
These are available to all students at no cost; no proof of need is required. Vegetarian options are always available. This is a plentiful resource, and students who could benefit from these meals should come to Room 210 on the second floor of the Student Union (same location as Nutritious U) every Thursday from 3 to 6 p.m. Email swipes@umn.edu for more information. 
 
St. Paul campus mobile food shelf (Foodmobile). 
Free groceries and household items are available to any University of Minnesota student and their family on the second Thursday of every month from 12 to 2 p.m. in the Commonwealth Terrace Cooperative Housing north parking lot. This program is operated by Keystone Community Services and will run through the spring semester.
 
SNAP screening.
Students can self-screen for SNAP eligibility by completing the survey located on this webpage. The Second Harvest SNAP Outreach Team will contact them to confirm eligibility and assist them with their application.
