North Campus mobile food distribution coming Nov. 4
U-M’s Maize & Blue Cupboard (MBC), the College of Engineering and Ann Arbor-based Food Gatherers will host a mobile food distribution program this Wednesday to make MBC resources more accessible to individuals living on North Campus while staying within COVID-19 safety and health guidelines.
The distribution is available to students, faculty and staff. It will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 4 from 2 – 4 p.m.in the northwest Parking Lot 10, located along Hubbard Road on North Campus. After this Wednesday’s distribution, the remaining distribution will be held on Nov. 18, from 2 – 4 p.m.
The initial idea for the North Campus Distribution pilot originated through the COVID Campus Challenge, sponsored by the College of Engineering and Student Life.
Trucks will deliver food items to the lot and shoppers can pick up pre-bagged vegetables and fruits as well as non-perishables pre-boxed for safety.
Reservations are required to participate in the mobile distribution and can be made on the Maize & Blue Cupboard website. Volunteers and donations of resources are also needed. Visit MBC to see how you can help.
