Does the institution host a food bank, pantry, or equivalent resource focused on alleviating food insecurity, hunger and poverty among students?:

A brief description of the food bank, pantry, or equivalent resource:

The Resource Center program brings together both primary and secondary resource supports in order to empower student participants. The project is a unique initiative that combines education and relationship building for students who lack available financial, personal and support system resources to succeed in college. Its intent is to build collaboration among a variety of community resources to help alleviate the many barriers that prevent students from achieving their educational goals.

RVCC Food Pantry is open to students, staff members, and faculty of Raritan Valley Community College. No appointments are necessary to use the food pantry. There is no limit in regards to how long anyone may utilize our services.
