Raiders Relief Food Pantry

FM Raiders Relief Food PantryWhy we offer a pantry

Food insecurity has increasingly become an issue on college campuses and can pose a significant barrier to student success. Many students come to campus with limited resources and little experience managing their needs. Hunger makes it difficult to study, sleep, or engage in academics and social activities at the same level as peers. If our students’ physiological needs aren’t being met, it ultimately decreases the chances of meeting their full potential and their overall student experience at Fulton-Montgomery Community College.

How to use the pantry

Students and employees who wish to access the Raiders Relief Food Pantry are welcome and encouraged to visit C-131 in O’Connell Hall once a week. Please bring your FM ID.
