Central Arizona College recognizes the reality of food insecurity among our student population and the extent to which hunger affects our communities.
In the United States, an estimated 40 million people, including 12 million children struggle with hunger. In Pinal county alone, nearly 60,000 people struggle with food insecurity on a regular basis.
The CAC Food Pantry is part of a larger initiative intended to improve student success and increase upward mobility by combating the negative effects of hunger within our community.
CAC Food Pantry locations are regularly re-stocked by faculty, staff and generous community members. We invite those in need to visit any of CAC’s library locations to receive food assistance.
