Barons don't go hungry.

We know you can’t do your best on an empty stomach! Nationwide research shows 42% of community college students experience food insecurity. This correlates with reduced academic performance and lower rates of degree completion. We want you to make it to the finish line! That’s why we’ve opened the student food pantry where you can access free food with no questions asked.

Check our virtual campus tour to find the pantry!  Start at Building 3 / Votta Hall or Building 4 / TEC and head towards the bus stop.
