Free Lunch On Wednesday (FLOW)
FLOW SPRING 2023
The Campus Life Office and the Associated Students of Modesto Junior College will be hosting Free Lunch On Wednesday’s (FLOW) during the spring semester of 2023. Students who have paid their student activity fee each semester are eligible for a free lunch each week. Campus Life and ASMJC will be providing Food Services Meal Tickets, to MJC Students each Wednesday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at BOTH campuses East Campus Quad and West Campus MSR building. Students will be served on a first come first serve basis (while supplies last) and need to show their Student ID with current student activity sticker. If you have waived the Student Activity Fee you are not eligible for FLOW.
The purpose of FLOW, since its creation, is to assist in feeding students on campus who may suffer from food insecurities.
In the Spring of 2016 the Office of Campus Life & Student Learning and the Associated Students of MJC were in search of a way to address food insecurities for students. Those discussions gave birth to Free Lunch on Wednesdays or FLOW. FLOW allows current MJC students to receive a free lunch each Wednesday on MJC East acampuse. FLOW is operated by Campus Life staff and funded through the student activity fee. A student who receives a FLOW lunch once has covered the cost of the Student Activity Fee. Since 2016, FLOW has fed 36,000 students at MJC. An recent increase in the student activity fee will allow FLOW to expand from 12 weeks a semester to 15 weeks per semester. 500 students a week are fed through FLOW.
