CPTC Food Pantry 

The Department of Student Life operates a student Food Pantry as an initiative of the Student Leadership & Service Center (SLSC). Supplemental funding for the food pantry is provided by the CPTC Student Activities Fees.

As of summer quarter, the CPTC Food Pantry will not provide a "shopping experience" for students due to safety precautions as a result of COVID-19. The department will continue to provide food security support through a modified process to adhere to physical distancing and reduced contact requirements.

"Go bags"have been created to serve student households consistently with staple items for creating balanced meals. Since students will not shop the pantry, we have added dietary considerations to the request form to accommodate; gluten free, diary free, vegetarian and no pork diets.
