Niagara County Community College (NCCC) will be relocating and expanding their existing Student Campus Pantry to accommodate new cold storage units. This upgraded area will make it possible to store more food and protein while combating food insecurity on campus.
Originally developed in Fall 2016, the NCCC Student Campus Pantry offers quality and nutritious emergency food to all NCCC students. 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 to foster a sense of community and service to peers on campus.
NCCC Student Life, in conjunction with the NCCC Foundation Office, is asking you to please donate to the Student Campus Pantry. Your donation will be utilized to purchase fresh foods such as; meat, dairy, vegetables, and fruit – along with providing the tools necessary to run a pantry with cold storage units. The funds will also offer additional benefits to students such as dietary accommodations, increased inventory, a safe space for Food Support Networks, and more.
Your donation of only $50 will feed an NCCC student 3 full meals per day for an entire week. You can also donate to feed a student for a month, a semester, or even a year! For more information or to donate, please visit https://www.niagaracc.suny.edu/studentlife/campus-pantry-fundraising/. Donations can also be made over the phone at 716-614-6255 or through the mail to: College Association of NCCC, 3111 Saunders Settlement Rd., Sanborn, NY 14132.
In addition to monetary donations, the NCCC Student Campus Pantry can also accept non-perishable food items. The students would greatly appreciate any of the following: breakfast items such as pancake mix, granola bars, and cereal, gluten-free or vegan items, pasta and pasta sauce, and quick meals such as mac n’ cheese, canned soup, and ramen.
