About the Food Pantry
The Westchester Community College Food Pantry is coordinated through the Office of Student Support Services. It is made possible by the generosity of Westchester Community College students, faculty, staff, community members and donors.
In addition to helping alleviate hunger within our student community, the Westchester Community College Food Pantry provides emergency food and referrals primarily to students in times of need helping them to stay in school and meet their educational goals.
