Why Basic Needs?:
From my first day of training at the food pantry, Basic Needs felt like where I belong. I feel so fulfilled in a position where I get to both advocate for food access and touch all the fresh produce every day. It’s also incredibly rewarding to see and support all the amazing work the rest of the team contributes, and feeling like such an important part of the Basic Needs community. It really is a village, and we’re all working towards the same goal: justice and belonging for everyone at UC Berkeley.
