UHD's Food for Change Program

UHD's Food for Change Program gives currently enrolled UHD students access to shop for fresh produce, meats and other groceries at our downtown campus, enabling you to save money for other necessities and maintain your focus on school.

Here's what you need to know:

  • The food scholarship allows currently enrolled UHD students to shop in the UHD Food for Change Market for up to 30 pounds of goods each week.
  • No payment is required when shopping in the market, the goal is to reduce stress on students managing personal responsibilities and academic progress.
  • You can shop for groceries before, in between, or after class to help supplement you and your family's food needs.
  • Appointments are currently required to shop in the market and should be made at least 24 hours in advance of your visit.
    • The market will reopen for full usage in the fall.
    • Food distribution to UHD Food for Change participants will be prepackaged.
