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.
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 currently enrolled students with a wide variety of fresh, frozen, and non-perishable food items on a weekly basis. In addition, the Food Pantry provides fresh fruits and vegetables at our monthly Produce Market.
Currently enrolled students can receive Food Pantry services by driving through the upper parking lot of campus, next to the cafeteria, during scheduled hours.
If you need assistance or have additional questions, please reach out to Special Programs & Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or (760) 252-6801. Together we can work to end food insecurity on our campus.
