Campus Pantry

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.

Hours of Operation:  Thursdays 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Fridays 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.   *Hours may be subject to change 
Location: G-242.

How to receive items: stop by during open hours.  Each student can take up to 18 items per week.

BYOB PERKS!  Bring your own bag and get 2 extra “limit” non-perishable items each week!

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.
