The Food Pantry provides emergency food assistance to students in need; any student who is currently enrolled at MiraCosta qualifies for the support. The support consists of either a snack, sack lunch or a gift card if they are available. Typical food pantry items consist of canned goods (pasta, vegetables, beans, tuna, soups, and fruit), granola bars, crackers, and snack-like items. The program provides short-term relief and offers referrals for additional community resources for ongoing assistance with food insecurity. More detailed information about the Food Pantry is available on the website: www.miracosta.edu/StudentServices/servicelearning/foodpantry.
The MiraCosta Food Pantry is sustained 100 percent through donations and financial support of faculty, staff, community and students. Financial contributions can be coordinated through the MiraCosta Foundation Office: 760.795.6645.
