University of California – Davis
Welcome Aggies!

About the program

In late November and mid-June, UC Davis hosts donation drives in residence halls and dining commons so that students can donate Aggie Cash, credit cards, and cash to support their classmates facing food insecurity. Funds from the drive directly support several programs: 1) the Aggie Meal Share, a financial aid program that provides meals to students who qualify for assistance; 2) the ASUCD Pantry, which provides food and other supplies, such as toiletries to UC Davis students in need; and 3) the Yolo Food Bank, which provides food to support the community members in Yolo County.

Are you experiencing food or housing insecurity on campus? Submit an application for the Aggie Meal Share program which is found on the Financial Aid Page, and check out our Campus Resources section below for additional information on the Basic Needs Center.
