Free Food Resources
Welcome to the UIC Wellness Center's webpage, where we are dedicated to tackling food insecurity and providing comprehensive support to our students and community members!
Here at the Wellness Center, we understand the importance of having access to essential food resources. That's why we have carefully gathered information on programs like WIC (Women, Infants, and Children), the Greater Chicago Food Depository, and SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). Whether you're a low-income pregnant woman, a new mother, or someone in need of food assistance, our primary aim is to connect you with these vital resources.
One of the key resources we offer is the UIC Pop-Up Pantry, specifically designed to cater to the needs of current UIC students. We recognize that food insecurity greatly impacts holistic wellness, encompassing academic performance, physical health, and emotional well-being.
By clicking on the links provided, you can explore the Greater Chicago Food Depository's Find Resources webpage, the dedicated webpage for the WIC program, and our SNAP resources webpage. These resources can make a substantial difference in ensuring access to nutritious food, thereby contributing to a healthier and more fulfilling student experience both on our campus and in our community.
