Scare up some food donations

Benny A McFadden

City College’s emergency food pantry is  hoping to restock it’s shelves in October  with “Scare Away Hunger,” an early  Fall request for donations.

Non-perishable food items such as canned  goods, bottled water or juice and pull-top  plastic fruit or pudding cups can be  dropped off in the Student Affairs Office  (D-106), CalWorks Office (L-121), or the  City Library and bookstore.

The pantry also needs gallon-size ziplock  baggies and individually wrapped plastic knife  and fork sets.  For those wishing  to make cash donations, checks may be  dropped off in the CalWorks office or  mailed in, addressed to “City College  Food Pantry.”

The food pantry offers two free meals  a month to any student who requests  them.  The food pantry is located  in the CalWorks office.  Contact Sandra Hostetter at email address below to learn more about  donations, the “Scare Away Hunger” drive and the upcoming Thanksgiving turkey drive.
