Fresh Express is a student-led emergency food assistance program, striving to serve University of Georgia students with balanced meals through non-perishables and fresh produce from local Athens-Clarke County partners. Our goal is to bridge the gap between student food insecurity and fresh nutritious food options. Our mission is dedicated to nourishing bodies, empowering minds, and creating a community of compassion.
Drop by anytime during our open hours to grab your items. We are located on the first floor of Joe Frank Harris Dining Commons. A volunteer will be available to assist you.
HOURS: M/T/W 12:00-5:00 p.m. & TH/F 9:00-1:00 p.m.
Fresh Express will be open until December 5th and then will close for UGA's winter break. Please check our Instagram (@ugafreshexpress) for more details about reopening and hours.
