El Camino College Warrior Pantry Seeks Donations
Campus food bank helps support students facing food insecurity
The new Warrior Pantry at El Camino College needs donations of food and toiletry items for the holidays. Healthy and nutritious nonperishable food items are needed, especially fruit cups, healthy snacks, rice and grains.
No time to shop or visit campus? Monetary donations can be made via the following link at any time: http://www.elcamino.edu/foundation/donate.asp. All assistance is welcome and appreciated.
The Warrior Pantry serves ECC students who face serious financial challenges and find it difficult to support themselves, in addition to paying for college. Research indicates that students without proper nutrition can have trouble focusing on school work and often worry about where they will find their next meal.
Toiletries, access to a computer and additional resources are also available in this supportive environment. The Warrior Pantry can be used by all currently enrolled El Camino College students needing assistance. Operating hours are regularly updated on the Warrior Pantry webpage.
Established earlier this fall through the leadership of the Student Equity Advisory Council, Associated Student Organization, and the Inter-Club Council, the Warrior Pantry operates with support from the Student Development Office, Student Equity Program, and Food and Shelter Task Force. Donations are continually accepted, in an effort to keep the shelves stocked.
