Taking From the Pantry
Students will be provided with various non-perishable items from the pantry. Students are encouraged to bring their own grocery bag or to reuse the grocery bag they are given upon their first visit to the pantry. The maximum amount of food a student can receive in a one month period is a total of seven bags (4 lunch bags and 3 pre-packaged bags). Students can use the Pantry services up to a maximum of four times per month, with a limit of one visit per day.

We accept non-perishable (non-expired) food, gift cards to local grocery stores or monetary donations. Checks can be made payable to the Delta College with "Student Food Pantry" in the memo line.
