Food Resources

We strive for a hunger free campus by increasing acessibility to programs and decreasing stigma.


THE FEED THE BEARS - Food Pantry

The SRJC Food Pantry is open to all currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff. There is no income requirement- we know how expensive groceries can be, so save yourself a trip to the grocery store and visit us instead! We feature fresh produce grown by the Shone Farm, and  food staples like tea, pasta, cereal, beans, rice, canned fruits and veggies, and even treats like Amy’s burritos. To sign up, visit the Student Resource Center in Bertolini. Based on your household size, you’ll get a weekly allotment of points to use towards a variety of food items. Don't forget your bag!

SUMMER SEMESTER HOURS: Starting June 24, 2019. 

Monday & Tuesday 11:30am - 2:30pm at the Bailey Field Kiosk

FRESH PRODUCE DISTRIBUTION - Free Farmer's Market

      Ran concurrently with the Food Pantry, the SRJC Farmer’s Market             features FREE fresh, seasonal produce provided by the Shone Farm           and other local donors. Here, you can find new, healthy recipes                     featuring the weekly produce.

    Some produce we've carried includes carrots, onions, potatoes, sweet      potatoes, celery, chard, kale, spinach, apples, oranges, pears, and                 lemons.
