Need Units? Food for Thought Open Enrollment

August 18, 2021

Hello, everyone! Our program, Food for Thought, is reaching out to inform you that sign-ups are now open for our 5 courses running this Fall 2021 semester!

What is Food for Thought?

Our program began in the Spring 2018 semester by undergrads with an idea to combine life skill courses with resources! We currently offer current Cal Undergraduates and Graduate students 5 courses and multiple resources for students in our program! As well, all our seminars are offered for 2 units letter graded (with the exception of the Berkeley Food Pharmacy being offered for 1-2 units P/NP).

What are our Courses this Semester?

  • Nutrition Seminar (CCN: 25339)

    • Learn about basic nutrition and health and what you can do to become more food secure. Our students will have access to free food!

  • Emotion Seminar (CCN: 25288)

  • Computer Seminar (CCN: 24742)
