Food Pantry

Basic Needs Logo


The mission of Ventura College Food Pantry is to provide students and community members an opportunity to access food at no cost. Our goal is for students to utilize the food pantry to help reduce stress about food insecurities, in turn helping them successfully complete and obtain their degrees from Ventura College. We strive to build awareness about food insecurity and conquer negative stigmas about visiting the Ventura College Food Pantry. 

Would you like to get involved?
