We would like to inform you of a service to all MCC students, faculty, and staff who may be facing food insecurities.
The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines food insecurity as a state in which "consistent access to adequate food is limited by a lack of money and other resources at times during the year."
How can we help?
Doing What Is Good and Healthy Together, is a campus food pantry initiative created to support students in need of food and additional resources to help those that are having difficulties making ends meet. We value our students and want to help our College Community!
Who is eligible?
The food pantries can be accessed by any MCC student, faculty, or staff member.
- MCC ID must be presented
- Limited to one visit per month (if you have additional needs, see the Student Life office)
- No appointments are necessary; however if the pantry is not staffed please stop into the Office of Student Life & Leadership Development (rm 3-126) at the Brighton Campus and a staff member can walk you over.
