Welcome to the West Los Angeles College Food Pantry. The purpose of the pantry is to provide emergency, supplemental food to students to assist in fighting food insecurities one step at a time.  Food insecurities are when an individual is unaware of where their next meal will be or having limited access to food. 

 

Many times students are faced with the decision to buy food or textbooks. Additionally, they are faced with poor meal choices, because they will not receive additional monies for weeks at a time and they cannot always afford enough to eat. 

 

The learning environment on campus is increasingly impacted by the hunger and food insecurities. Food insecurities are linked to high dropout rates and not devoting time to studies. With the pantry, West LA College is assisting students with food insecurities and breaking a non-academic barrier that hinders student success. 


Pantry Access

Contact us by e-mail with "Food Pantry Request" as subject and your Student ID # in the body of the email. You will be contacted with an access time. Students will remain relatively anonymous by providing only their Student ID and email (TurnerM@wlac.edu) 

 

Upon access to the pantry services, you will need to provide a Student ID Card. Eligible weekly visits, students are free to choose from a variety of food items that meet their needs. Once a student has chosen food, the food will be logged for inventory. Inventory is kept to allow for a better understanding of what food items students prefer and the ability to stock accordingly. 

 

Recipes and additional food information are available to help build healthy meals with the food provided in the pantry.
