Is there an organization providing food and support services?
Starting March 18, the UM Food Bank (Kinard Hall, Room 213) is moving to a Grab-N-Go bag system to promote social distancing and limit person-to-person contact. It will be a self-serve operation in the lobby outside the Food Bank on the second floor of Kinard Hall. These items will be available any time while supplies last. Currently, the Food Bank is low on high-demand items, but will have some ready-to-go meals with recipes and pantry staples bags. Food is being restocked as much as possible. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am feeling really overwhelmed. Who can I talk to?
The University Counseling Center will provide hybrid services this fall. Students have the option of in person or tele-mental health services. Detailed information is available on the UCC website, including information for out-of-state students about referrals. The website will be updated and will reflect the most recent information and changes to UCC services. For additional information, please call the UCC at 662-915-3784, email email@example.com or visit the UCC website. The UCC will make every effort to address your emailed questions in a timely manner.
