Raiders Relief Food Pantry

Food PantryWhy we offer a pantry

Food insecurity has increasingly become an issue on college and university 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 experience at Fulton-Montgomery Community College.

How to use the pantry

Students who wish to access the Raiders Relief Food Pantry are welcome and encouraged to visit U-041 (lower level of the Student Union). Bring your FM ID.

Hours of Operation:
