We learn as whole people. To learn effectively you must have basic security: a roof over your head, a safe place to sleep, enough food to eat. If you need assistance with any of these areas, Barstow Community College has staff dedicated to addressing your basic needs. Reach out to Special Programs & Services at supportservices@barstow.edu. Together we can work to make sure those needs are met.

Food Pantry

Barstow Community College is committed to fighting hunger and food insecurity on campus. According to John Burton’s Advocates for Youth, 2 in 3 students report experiencing food insecurity, where they are unable to provide enough food for each household member to live an active and healthy life.

Special Programs and Services has opened up a Food Pantry for all students in order to address this need for our students. The Food Pantry provides weekly groceries and food items to currently enrolled students every week in the upper parking lot of campus, next to the cafeteria.

The Food Pantry is open on Tuesdays from 9:00am-12:00pm in the summer, and open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00am-12:00pm starting August 18, 2020.

If you need assistance or have additional questions, please call (619) 500-4274 or email supportservices@barstow.edu.
