Students can come to the Food Pantry for nonperishable food items up to twice a month and the Food Fridge for snacks, produce, and light lunch items once a day while food is stocked. Food contributions largely provided by CCEFS (Christian Cupboard Emergency Food Shelf). Students need to have their student ID card or student ID number with them. Mobile Market is available the second Tuesday of each month during fall and spring semester through a partnership with the White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf and generous contributions of local community members. Some produce provided is from the Giving Gardens hosted by the Century College Horticulture Program on east campus. Referrals to community food programs are also provided.
The Resource and Support Center is closed until further notice and all events have all been cancelled due to the COVID-19 Virus CDC, Minnesota State System and College Leadership recommendations. Food packs of non-perishables are available during this time on campus at the new OneStop. Century College students can also pick up To-Go Bags of Groceries at the White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf.
