Students are finding it harder and harder to concentrate on getting an education when working on empty stomachs. Sometimes it comes down to feeding their families or buying gas to get out to campus. We are here to help. We cannot solve every problem, but we might make it a just a little bit easier to continue your education. Without a degree, there is no escape from these tough economic problems.
“I’d like to thank you for offering the food pantry program. It helped feed my family. I appreciate it a lot for all the staff and students who made this possible. Have a great day.”

Students will be required to fill out a brief intake form with basic information on the first visit to the pantry; however, all visits to the pantry are tracked only by Student ID and anonymity is always protected. Must show current Kirtland ID at every visit.
Taking from the Pantry
Students are able take advantage of the pantry once a month to obtain various non-perishable food items. The food selection is dependent on what has been donated at any given time. Students will be given a recyclable grocery bag at the first visit and are responsible to bring back this or similar bags for any future visits to the pantry.

“I believe my education is important to me today, but it is hard to concentrate on the class when I worry about my kids. Any piece of help is working to make my studying easier. Now, every month I can get some food for my family at college’s food pantry. I thank Kirtland people who care about students like me, who open the food pantry and help us to survive.”
