Please join UC Merced’s culinary team and local Merced restaurants and businesses for a Salvage Social Hour. Enjoy upcycled appetizers and learn about food waste prevention.
Alongside local businesses that include Taste of Little India, J&R Tacos, Trevino’s Mexican Restaurant, Marie’s Mexican Kitchen and Sam’s Café, our culinary team from UC Merced will be creating delicious appetizers. In addition, we will be offering samples of Crumb Trail Al, a sustainably brewed beer. Image Masters UC Merced Bobcat pint glasses are available for the first 90 guests.
Proceeds from the event will benefit UC Merced’s Bobcat Pantry which serves our food insecure students. Studies show that hunger has a direct impact on student’s ability to focus on school. With 61% of our students experiencing food insecurity, the Bobcat Pantry serves as a critical source in providing food and connecting our students to additional basic needs resources.
To reserve your spot at the Salvage Social Hour, please make a tax-deductible donation to UC Merced’s Bobcat Pantry via the RSVP link. There is no set amount needed to register, but for every $10 you donate, you connect our students with 10 nutritious meals.
Note- this venue and event is 21 and up.
