With the understanding that hunger on college campuses is a serious and preventable problem, the Food Justice Project serves members of the UC Berkeley community who have been denied CalFresh benefits. Members will assist individuals in navigating the appeals process by providing direct client services in an intake interview system. As an organization that understands that food insecurity can be a sensitive issue, we are committed to training our members on how to serve clients using a trauma-informed model. We partner closely with the Basic Needs Center on campus and work together to provide resources to students who need help obtaining benefits.
Time Commitment: 13-18 hours a semester, which includes trainings, meetings, and clinic hours. Meetings and drop-in clinic hours will occur Thursday evenings (6-8pm) four times a semester. FJP is flexible with member time commitment, so the actual total hours will depend on the availability of each member.
