Students will bring their Student ID to Building 67A (next to the Pedestrian Bridge over Bonita Ave.) to receive their free bag of non-perishable food items and paper products (when available).
A recent survey showed 46% of Mt. SAC students having some form of food insecurity (not having enough food to eat and/or having to forgo food for another expense such as books or housing).
The Pantry is a partnership with Sowing Seeds for Life foodbank. It was first pilot tested in May 2018. In order to provide more complete assistance to those lacking the financial resources.
