The Office of Student Affairs maintains a FOOD BANK for Palomar College students who need a helping hand. Students may have access to the Food Bank by completing the Food Bank Application Form and having their Counselor, Health Services, EOPS, DRC, or TRIO sign for confirmation. Any one of these departments will be able to help you with the application form. Food is distributed according to the number of immediate family members (student, significant other, minor children) and the availability of items. Students may receive food once a month.
Donations may be made to the Food Bank through the Office of Student Affairs. Items should not be stale-dated and should be non-perishable. Monetary donations may be given to the Office of Student Affairs for the Food Bank Fund. Funds are deposited in a special account and only used to restock the Food Bank as needed.
