Welcome to the
Food Pantry e-Gift Cards
- Instead of picking up groceries on campus, students registered for services will receive an electronic gift card (e-Gift Card) for $50 to be used for the purchase of groceries— on an ongoing basis, funding permitting. Details to follow upon registration.
- Your e-Gift Card(s) may be used in-person at Walmart & Sam's Club and online at walmart.com.
Thank you to our Donors
A special thanks to the Assistance League® of Los Altos for their contribution and ongoing support to the Foothill Food Pantry. Thanks to donors like the Assistance League® of Los Altos, hundreds of students facing food insecurity are able to put food on their tables.

Local Community Resources
For hunger assistance within your local communities and information about CafFresh for Students, a state program that awards you up to $193 a month for groceries, see our list of community hunger support resources.
When you are experiencing hunger, you are not alone.
At Foothill College we strongly believe that no student should face hunger while pursuing their educational and career goals. However, an increasing number of students are facing food insecurity and we are committed to help.
