Cerro Coso Community College

Hunger Free Campus

Hunger Free Campus

During an Ohio State University 2017 study on Collegiate Financial Wellness, it was discovered that 58.7% of Cerro Coso students worry about not having enough money for food to get them through the month. That is 9.7% higher than the sampled average of other community colleges.

Hunger Free Campus was created to address food insecurity for students. It is Cerro Coso's belief that no student should have to learn on an empty stomach.

Are you getting enough to eat?

To confidentially request a free meal, please contact

  • Leigh Duggan - Learning Resource Center
  • Greg Kost or Kim Blackwell - Counseling
  • Trina Tobey - ACCESS Programs

Check monthly student event flyers for activities that provide snacks/food.

How can I help?

Donate Money

Monetary donations can be made to Hunger Free Campus through the Cerro Coso Community College (CCCC) Foundation. The CCCC Foundation has established a new fund to collect donations that will allow us to create and sustain campus food pantries at all CCCC campuses.
