Campus Cupboards

CCAC Food Bank

CCAC campus cupboards are made possible through partnerships with the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. Ongoing support from the food bank and campus food drives keeps the cupboards supplied with a variety of canned goods, soup, pasta, and other nonperishable foods, as well as some household items. Several of the cupboards will also offer fresh produce in season from the campus gardens.

Any student in need of food assistance may utilize the
cupboards for free. No income documentation is required; however, students are asked to complete a brief form provided on-site to use the cupboards. For more information, contact  studentengagement@ccac.edu or reach out to any campus coordinator at the location of your choosing at the numbers below.
