Free Food Program

Our Free Food Program for UAS residents is a collaboration between the UASRA and FoodCycle LA, a non-profit organization that rescues food that would be otherwise thrown away from markets like Trader Joe's, Sprouts and Whole Foods. More about them at


FoodCycle volunteers bring food that they collect from the above-mentioned markets to us and then our officers and volunteers distribute the donated food to the community. This happens throughout the week.


The food varies from week to week depending on what we receive. For the UAS community, it's always free.


Get Involved

The Free Food Program is powered by volunteers, and we rely on them to keep the program going. Join us today and help keep food out of landfill and help feed your community!
