ASC Food Hub Initiative
The Arts Student Centre (ASC) Food Hub Initiative is a series of programs and initiatives that seeks to create an accessible program that fosters social connections, promotes campus food security, and creates a holistic support network for all Arts community members. The Food Hub will support a collective effort to improve community health and student well-being on the UBC campus and beyond.
Our projects include:
ASC Community Pantry (Take 3 food items from the Arts Student Centre kitchen area) 🥫
ASC Community Meals (Free community meals for students at the Arts Student Centre) 🍽
Club Collaborations (Organize Community Meals with the AUS with club benefits) 🤝
Social Media Resources (Food-related content to raise awareness on food insecurity) 📱
ASC Community Pantry 💜
The ASC Community Pantry is part of the ASC Food Hub Initiative that aims to provide free canned goods and food items to the UBC community. 🍜🍲
Anyone can come to the Arts Student Centre's second-floor kitchen to take up to 3 items from our pantry, which is stocked and refilled every two weeks.
Feel free to suggest items for our pantry through the anonymous ASC Feedback Survey linked below! Check the pantry's refill schedule in the Calendar below as well, which is updated every term! 🗓🧑🏻💻
Pantry Inventory 🥫
You can check what we've stocked for our Community Pantry! We will update our Pantry Inventory with the list of items that will be available for each restock cycle 1-3 days beforehand. ✨
Community Meals Club Collaborations 🤝
The AUS Administration Portfolio is committed to providing students with free meals as part of our ASC Food Hub Initiative’s Community Meal Program.
We would like to invite student clubs on campus to collaborate with us in organizing Community Meal events for students every month as we aim to host 2 to 3 Community Meal events each month! 🍳🍴
Events can be free community meals for students, cooking or baking workshops, food fairs, free food giveaways, and more! 🍝🥗
Benefits include funding, prioritized booking for Community Meals at the Arts Student Centre, no damage deposit requirement for bookings, and event support from our Food Hub Team! 💵✨
