Food Pantry

We know you can't do your best in class on an empty stomach. We want to help you succeed!

The Edmonds College Food Pantry is located in the Olympic Building (see map below). The food pantry is a free service available to Edmonds College students and employees experiencing food insecurity.

You can pick up food and personal hygiene supplies at the food pantry, including non-perishable items such as canned food, pasta, grains, dried fruits, and other shelf-stable items.

Donations are always accepted

New! Hungry to Learn Documentary:  Exploring food insecurity of college studentsHungry to Learn poster

"The Food Pantry program is hosting a special documentary viewing for “Hungry to Learn” at the Black Box Theatre on April 17, 1-3 p.m.

Please come join us as the film explores the food insecurity of college students and how it impacts their daily lives. We’ll  also hold a short Q&A session to discuss the film and ways the Edmonds College has addressed these important issues.

A donation box  will be placed right outside of the viewing room, for students or any audience members to donate any canned or shelf-stable items they would like to support our food pantry!"
