Did you know…
The WCC Pantry, THE WCC FOOD BANK, opened in October 2014, and through the strict guidelines of the Food Bank for Westchester, was up and running for a few months prior to the establishment of an official partnership. In March 2015, Westchester Community College became the first college in Westchester to partner with the Food Bank. Through the use of work-study students, the pantry is staffed on a regular basis with hours of operation from 11 AM to 1 PM daily. Students are most interested in pack-n-go lunches, snacks, and take home meals. Events have been coordinated on campus including a Dance-a-thon, healthy food demonstrations, and Thanksgiving Feasts. Through additional partnerships with local supermarkets and food pantries in the community we have been successfully able to expand our capacity. If you are interested in making a food donation to the college’s food bank, please contact Debra Santora.
