Clash of the Cans

UCI Annual Food Drive - Donate Through December 14th!

Help combat hunger in our community by donating during UCI's 14th annual Clash of the Cans food drive. You can contribute by making a monetary donation to the OC Food Bank to provide meals to Orange County families in need or by donating nonperishable goods that will benefit UCI's Basic Needs Center, a student-initiated project that ensures UCI students' basic needs are met by providing resources, services, and support to help the campus thrive.

We are also proud to support National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week on November 11 through 18, in which Anteaters may participate in food preparations, donate goods, and partake in various UCI-hosted events.
