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.

What if I need assistance beyond the food pantry resources?

RCBC students can access additional support resources through the Student Support office.  Our team can assist with accessing local, county and state programs, provide access to counseling resources and connect students with other supports.  Please contact us directly for additional information.

Can I volunteer to help with the food pantry?

Throughout the semester, the pantry may use volunteers to help bag food and host tables on campus to inform students about the pantry. To sign up to be notified about volunteer opportunities, click here.
