Who are we?
The UIC Wellness Center and the Undergraduate Student Government (USG), have launched a service called the Pop-Up Pantry which is a food pantry for registered UIC students. The Pop-Up Pantry offers canned goods and non-perishable food items. The resource is free for students, and intended to help any student who is experiencing a decreased access to food due to budgetary constraints.
