You can complete your Food Preference Form online at www.aub.ie/foodform. Please note that all requests will be filled based on availability, so you may not receive everything on your request form. All forms completed by Wednesday at 12:00pm (noon) will be available for pick-up on Thursday from 9:00am-10:00am on the concourse between the Student Center and Haley Center. Additionally, please be mindful that you MUST turn in an empty bag in order to receive your bag for the week (i.e., return a previous bag when you pick up a new bag).
We will operate on this format for the entirety of the period that classes are online (March 16-April 10). If you are unable to pick up during the aforementioned time due to class or work, please email@example.com and we can attempt to make other arrangements.
Campus Food Resources

An unmarked bag is filled according to what is in stock in the Campus Food Pantry. Students are able to access the Campus Food Pantry once a week.
The Feed the Family Fund is a need-based meal assistance program that provides funding in dining dollars to a student’s Tiger Card. Recipients use the funds at campus dining venues only. Applications are open annually from February 1-28.
