Basic Needs Security Student Coalition

Basic Needs Security Student Coalition

The Student Coalition is a space for student leaders working towards basic needs security to come together and coordinator, collaborate, support, and strategize with one another. The Coalition unifies the student voice (undergraduate and graduate) in basic needs security dialogues and initiatives, representing over 15 independent organizations and offices. 


The Coalition is a space for student leaders to come together in a way to ensure that each members’ efforts (in their respective organizations/projects) will move toward student basic needs security in a convergent and unified manner. It has brought together a rich and passionate community of basic needs activists and advocates.

The conversation about basic needs must squarely center students. Students understand their own needs; they must also be leaders in addressing those needs. The Berkeley Student Food Collective was founded on a platform of student power, and we are proud to be a part of a Basic Needs Security Coalition that includes, centers, and serves students in the fight to ensure all students have solid foundations for academic success.
— Jeff Noven, Berkeley Student Food Collective

Student organizations interested in contributing to and learning from the Coalition are invited to send 1-2 delegates on their behalf.
