Walla Walla Community College opens free food pantry

WALLA WALLA, Wash. – Walla Walla Community College has opened their student food pantry.

As inflation sky rockets, and food prices increase, the free pantry couldn’t come at a better time.

Additionally, Feeding America found that college students aren’t immune to going hungry. They said college student demographics are changing as more part-time students are entering school. Some of them must balance school and work to provide for their families, finding that many come from low-income homes.

According to a Facebook post from WWCC, all  you have to do is fill out a short form to get food from the pantry.

The pantry has grab-and-go food as well as items to cook up a healthy meal at home.

At the food pantry, students can also be connected with resources to secure long-term help in getting food.

The Warrior Food Pantry is located in room 245 in the ‘D’ building. It’s open Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 4 PM.
