Located inside the Thrive Center in FR 233, HCC's Food Pantry provides basic foods to students in need. Students are free to choose the foods they wish according to their dietary needs.
All students are welcome to use the Food Pantry; all you need is a valid student ID. Referrals are no longer required.
Through Thrive, we also work to connect students to more long-term solutions.
Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
