Food Support Services Volunteers

UCC Building
Posted 4 months ago

Food Support Services (FSS) is a USC student-run food bank, located in UCC 258, dedicated to reducing food insecurity among Western University undergraduate students. FSS food bank volunteers are dedicated students who help students during food bank open hours, fill confidential food hamper requests for our locker service, and provide valuable feedback to the coordinator to improve the service. FSS could not help students without the support of our volunteers. Volunteering with FSS is a great opportunity to be involved with the USC, have a direct hand in helping others, and create meaningful impact during your time at Western.
