BNC Spring Hours of Operations - Our Center is currently closed to the public but is currently providing remote services for the month of January. We will be providing an update soon for our open hours in February!
Hey, y'all! My name is Arjun Mehta (He/ him/ his) and I am currently a second-year studying Integrative Biology (major) and Spanish Language (minor)! It is truly an honor to be one of the Food Pantry Ambassadors this semester! I love to try new foods, listen to K-pop, and watch mukbangs on youtube! One fun fact about me is that I had my first hamburger when I was 16 years old! (As for my review, it was alright :P). Feel free to reach out to me if you need anything <3!
The food pantry is a place where I find my sense of purpose, gratitude, and belonging. It’s so incredibly grounding to interact with staff, volunteers, and the UC Berkeley community we serve through a mutual appreciation for food! I have been obsessed with food all my life. Whether it be my grandma’s homemade dumplings or the new takeout spot downtown, I am always in such awe over the connection that food can bring to people and their communities. As pantry staff, I hope to promote that connection through advocating for basic needs and food justice for all.
I’m a 4th year transfer student studying Psychology. I joined the pantry my first semester at Cal, Fall 2020, and I have loved every moment of it! This pandemic has only further illuminated how hardworking, special, and resilient this team is and I feel so lucky to be a part of it.
