Mobile Market Mondays at USG

USG has implemented several initiatives to encourage health and wellness on campus. Mobile Market Mondays at USG 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.
The market runs solely on volunteer labor; we welcome all volunteers, please sign up here. For more information on the Mobile Market Mondays contact me at: oakaigwe@umd.edu.

USG Grover Essentials

We also have the USG Grover Essentials food pantry. USG has a partnership with Manna Food Distribution Center, where they provide an ongoing supply of shelf safe items on a weekly basis. Grover Essentials includes items such as cereal, cooking staples (salt, sugar, beans), peanut butter, jelly, cereal, dry pasta, canned veggies, and fruits. In addition, we have a rotating supply of baby and toiletry items. Grover Essentials is located in Building III, SAS suite and is open to students, staff, and faculty with a valid USG ID.
We are excited about these programs and hope it will help in the effort to promote wellness and healthy living in our community.
