image of a map of UC Davis campus

The food access map will show locations where UC Davis community members can access food and microwaves on-campus.

The map will include information regarding price, quantity, hours, food allergies and diversity of food options. Funding will be used to purchase microwaves, if the initial scans determine a need for additional microwaves. The project leaders will also use the environmental scan data to advocate for additional accessible food options in various locations on campus.

Project Leads:

Project Funding:

$14,500


Outcomes:

By increasing access to microwaves and increasing awareness of food options, it will help alleviate the waitimes and congestion on heavily impacted food services on campus. Additionally, we will use the map to advocate for increased food options in areas of campus with minimal access to food.

Timeline

Involvement:

There will be an electronic Food Access survey distributed in Winter. Additionally, any anecdotal feedback regarding individuals' experiences using microwaves or trying to find affordable food on campus, would be welcomed.
