Food Closet Project

In 2016, Bruins of the South Bay club collected nonperishable food items and toiletries for the Food Closet. According to a July 2016 Los Angeles Times article, 40% of UC students do not have a consistent source of high-quality, nutritious food. The Food Closet, which opened in 2009, feeds hungry students, no questions asked.

  1. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of
    this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
    tough to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and
    appearance. I must say you have done a very good job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Opera.

    Outstanding Blog!


  2. Website is beautiful in addition to very informative. Thank you to all involved.
