Campus Corner: Student Food Pantry


The Campus Corner: Student Food Pantry opened in autumn 2017 as a direct response to the need among our community of students for more resources to fight food insecurity.

With tuition, fees, textbook costs and living expenses, it has become increasingly difficult for students to juggle the costs of living with the costs of obtaining a degree, and thus many students are finding themselves choosing between essentials such as food and the costs of college. The food pantry was established to provide non-perishable food to those in need at COTC.

Only a student ID is required to utilize the Campus Corner.
