About Us

The Aggie Compass is a comfortable space for students to build community and learn about basic needs resources, pick up fresh fruits and vegetables and receive CalFresh enrollment assistance.

Our Mission is to provide students with access to basic needs resources that help alleviate the chronic stress resulting from constant efforts to find and afford nutritious food, stable housing and financial assistance. Aggie Compass frees students to find a true home at UC Davis, achieve academically, get involved with the campus community and graduate.

The Global Food Initiative (GFI)

"The University of California Global Food Initiative addresses one of the critical issues of our time: how to sustainably and nutritiously feed a world population expected to reach eight billion by 2025.

The initiative aligns the university's research, outreach and operations in a sustained effort to develop, demonstrate and export solutions - throughout California, the United States and the world - for food security, health and sustainability."
