Food Resources For Students

The FAST Fund is student advocacy non-profit that deals specifically with small grants for emergency situations. While we may be able to help in an emergency, having food to eat is more ongoing need, and these are some of our fellow community advocates who are here to help. We also insist that students check in with the on campus food pantries too, they are an awesome resource!!!
