Making a change starts with heart. Be involved in creative and enjoyable volunteer opportunities that allow you to be focused on and productive in learning new skills, helping others, making new friends, and making a difference. When you volunteer you can be a part of a community of student volunteers who build knowledge and skills to better serve members in the community.
The UHD Food Market provides free food, toiletries, and supplies to all University of Houston - Downtown students in financial need.
How does the UHD Food for Change Market work:
The program allows students to shop in the UHD Food for Change Market for up to 40 pounds of goods each week.
No payment is required when shopping in the market, as the initiative aims to reduce stress on students managing personal responsibilities and academic progress.
Students may shop for groceries anytime during open hours Monday - Friday from 8 am-5 pm.
Students must complete the Houston Food Bank's Registration Form to be eligible. Students who have previously applied do not need to do so again.
Students must be enrolled at UHD to meet eligibility requirements for the program.
We are always in need of volunteers, especially during delivery days which are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please feel free to contact us if you're interested.
