Area community college students facing ongoing pandemic-related challenges are getting some new relief as in the way of newly stocked shelves at campus food pantries. As 2021 came to a close, the annual Pack the Pantry food drive organized by California Coast Credit Union, raised more than 51,000 meals for community college students facing food insecurity.

The Pack the Pantry food drive has become an important annual initiative, in partnership with the San Diego Food Bank and community colleges. The food drive was exclusively virtual in 2021 due to the pandemic, but still raised enough funds to provide 51,496 meals for 10 community college food pantries.

“San Diego’s community colleges sincerely appreciate Cal Coast, the San Diego Food Bank, and all those who supported Pack the Pantry. The funds raised will provide meals for hard-working students who are struggling to support themselves and their families. Food drives such as Pack the Pantry have become an important part of our efforts to support students’ basic needs,” said San Diego Community College District (SDCCD) Chancellor Carlos O. Turner Cortez.

A recent study discovered that more than 50 percent of local community college students face food insecurity, meaning they don’t have consistent access to food.
