The UCSB Thrive Basic Needs Communications Team strives to inform the UCSB campus community and partners about all Basic Needs resources, including food, housing, well-being, academic and financial resources. Our team manages several outreach strategies, including presentations to staff and faculty, tabling, newsletters, outreach on social media, poster campaigns, and the Basic Needs website, which received over 30,000 visitors during the 2019-2020 academic year. 

We invite all partners who work to support student with their Basic Needs to reach out the Communications Team and partner on events, campaigns, strategy, printed materials, and more! To connect with the Communications Team, email Daisy Basulto, Calfresh and Basic Needs Communication Coordinator, at daisybasulto-hernand@ucsb.edu, or find us on Instagram at @ucsbthrive
