According a survey conducted in 2016, the percentage of FVCC’s students facing food insecurity are higher than the regional and national figures. Results showed that 57% of our students didn’t have enough money to purchase food to last, and 51% of our students reported they had to reduce meal size or skip meals due to lack of food. The Food Pantry ensures that no student will be left hungry.
How to Use the Food Pantry
Bring a student ID and a current class schedule (dated within 30 days) to LRC 109 during operating hours. Complete a brief online form before gathering food items. Privacy will be protected and all information is kept confidential.
We are seeking student volunteers to organize and stock the pantry, promote awareness and assist patrons.
