What is Zot Bites?

Created by the FRESH Basic Needs Hub, Zot Bites is a text-based notification system that invites students to be an after-event guest when a catered event is over and leftover food is available. By opting in, students will receive text messages informing them when and where food is available on campus.

With limited on-campus, catered events, we are repurposing this platform to provide real-time text updates about our pantry distributions. If you would like to stop receiving these notifications for now, simply reply “STOP.” Don’t worry! You can rejoin Zot Bites at any time by logging into zotbites.basicneeds.uci.edu, then clicking “Register.” Please email fresh@uci.edu for any of your questions.

If you are already a Zot Bites user (Student or Food Partner), please login, otherwise, register with us!
