Mobile Market Mondays at USG

Beginning this Monday, September 24th, the Universities at Shady Grove (USG) is implementing initiatives to encourage health and wellness on campus through Mobile Market Mondays. The Mobile Market is a program supported by the Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB), who provides fresh seasonal fruits, vegetables, and other food items at ZERO COST for distribution to the campus and community. All you need to do is stop by Lot 5 (visitor’s parking lot), bring your grocery bags and pick up some food. We invite you to come on the 4th Monday of every month to collect food items.

Looking to volunteer? The market will run solely on volunteer labor; we welcome all volunteers. Please sign up here.

In addition to the Mobile Market Mondays at USG there is also the new food pantry, Grover Essentials, located in the SAS Suite (building III). All members of the USG Community with a valid USG ID are welcome to visit on a weekly basis. For more details and ways to involved, please contact:
