Participate in Mutual Aid programs

GSU has its own Mutual aid committee, which you are more than welcome to join. In addition to that, we encourage you to look into Chicago wide mutual aid programs such as Love Fridge.

Love Fridge is a community based mutual aid group which runs a network of fridges that community members can contribute food to or take food from depending on their needs.
