UCSB Food Security & Basic Needs Taskforce

The UCSB Food Security and Basic Needs Taskforce is offering free grocery delivery (free for the delivery and free for the groceries) to eligible UCSB students who are currently sick, showing signs of illness, are quarantined, over 60 years of age, or immune-compromised for as long as you are not able to visit the grocery store. Given the increasing need for this program, they will also only be able to support students with demonstrated financial need when considering new registrants.
