Every day, we are working hard to provide you—and every single one of our members—with real and powerful benefits that can help bring you the better life you have earned and deserve. One valuable example of this is the UFCW Free College Benefit.
The UFCW Free College Benefit makes it possible for you and/or your loved ones to earn an Associate Degree online through Eastern Gateway Community College with no out-of-pocket costs or need for loans. This benefit is available exclusively to UFCW members, retired members, and family of members, including children, spouses, grandchildren, domestic partners, and dependents.
Best of all, the UFCW Free College Benefit is designed to help you balance work and home life. You can attend school part-time or full-time – whichever fits your schedule. All you need to get started is a high school degree or GED, there are no entrance exams to worry about.
Here are some of the available programs you can apply to:
- Business Management
- Early Childhood Education

As always, if there is anything we can do to help you, or if you have any ideas about what we can do better, please do not hesitate to let us know.
Sincerely and fraternally,
Matt Utecht, President, UFCW Local 653
