Cougar Cabinet Food Pantry

Lehigh Carbon Community College provides a Food Pantry Program, the “Cougar Cabinet,” to our students, staff and faculty who are experiencing food insecurity or may be in need of supplemental food options or personal care items.  We realize that there are many financial obligations for students and from time to time it is difficult to cover all expenses necessary to be a successful student.
 
Through funding from the LCCC Foundation and the United Way and in partnership with The Second Harvest Food bank, we are able to provide students with the opportunity to receive food items once a  week to supplement your food supply. Students do not need to provide any documentation of need, but will need to have a LCCC ID card and complete a declaration form, which is available at the pantry.
