Free Lunch On Wednesday (FLOW)

Flow 2020

Purpose

The purpose of FLOW, since its creation, is to assist in feeding students on campus who may suffer from food insecurities. 

History 

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 both the MJC East and West campuses.  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.

FLOW Fall 2020 

Campus Life and ASMJC are excited to bring Free Lunch On Wednesday’s (FLOW) back. In place of giving students who have paid their student activity fee each semester a free lunch each week, Campus Life & ASMJC will be providing WinCo cards to MJC Students each Wednesday. Students will need to sign-up for a time slot to pick-up their WinCo cards at the East Campus. Students will be served on a first come first serve basis.  Students will need to show their Student ID with current student activity sticker. If you waived the Student Activity Fee you are not eligible for FLOW.
