The NCCC Student Campus Pantry was originally established in fall 2016. It was developed to distribute quality and nutritious food to NCCC students. The campus pantry offers non-perishable and perishable items such as dairy, produce, and meat. It also works to raise awareness surrounding hunger issues and food insecurity, especially experienced by low-income college students. In addition, it encourages student engagement in turn fostering a sense of community and service to peers on campus.
The Campus Pantry is located in G-245. If you are interested in placing an order, you will have the option to place either an online order or come to the pantry to “shop” in person. Online orders will offer randomly selected items, shopping in person will allow you to personalize your selection.

For Information on How to Donate
As the needs of our students continue to grow, so does the need for support. Our goal is to raise at least $5,000 in donations to be utilized towards purchasing fresh food such as; meat, dairy, vegetables, and fruit – along with providing the tools necessary to run a pantry with the addition of new cold storage units. The funds will also offer additional benefits to students such as dietary accommodations, increased inventory, and a safe space for Food Support Networks.
