“Pack the Pantry” Virtual Food Drive Launches to Help Fill MiraCosta College's Food Pantry

Approximately 50% of local community college students grapple with food insecurity. As a result of not having reliable, consistent access to food, students miss classes or drop out of school. 

The pandemic continues to severely impact students, and has increased the demand at food pantries on local college campuses. 

With the 3rd annual Pack the Pantry food drive, California Coast Credit Union is partnering with all of the local community college campuses and the San Diego Food Bank to raise funds and fill local college pantries. 

During the month of November, please donate online to help provide much-needed food for MiraCosta College students by visiting: https://www.fooddriveonline.org/sandiegofoodbank/index.php?s=MiraCostaCollege or using the QR code below. 

Both the San Diego Food Bank and North County Food Bank are donating their services to support the Pack the Pantry food drive by providing the food to the community colleges at the end of the fundraiser.
