Food Pantries

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Effective at 5 p.m. on March 20, 2020, all campuses are closed until further notice.

For food assistance in your community, please see:

We recognize that you may face challenges as you seek to obtain your education and sometimes you go through times when it is hard to make ends meet.

If you're experiencing hunger or food insecurity, come by our food pantries. We supply non-perishable grocery items to help you through the difficult times. Simply bring your student ID and fill out a short intake form to access food pantry services.

Hours are subject to change, due to availability of volunteers. Call and confirm hours if you're coming from off-campus.
