Foothill is fortunate to have opened a Food Pantry last fall thanks to partners Second Harvest Food Bank and the Community Services Agency. The Food Pantry provides groceries to any Foothill student enrolled in credit or non-credit classes who meets the self-reported income eligibility set by Second Harvest. But for students who don’t have a home where they can bring groceries and make meals, the Food Pantry is not a viable option. - See more at: https://foundation.fhda.edu/stories/FH_food_pantry.html#.WTH2qcm1tsM

The Gavilan College food pantry is a collaboration between Gavilan College CalWORKs, Fresh Success, Association Students of Gavilan College (ASGC), Second Harvest Food Bank and St. Joseph’s Family Center.  The pantry is open all year long and serves the entire Gavilan College Community.

Be health, stay well and avoid Coronavirus

Foothill College is here to support you. We want you to  be safe and healthy and to successfully complete your classes! The college is focused on these goals.


If you develop flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, sore throat), please consult your healthcare professional immediately and remain at home until your symptoms improve (don't come to class if you are sick!)

UPDATE ABOUT TESTING


If a medical provider determines that a student needs to be tested for COVID 19, students will be sent for testing to the Santa Clara location.  Instructions and location will be provided during visit. To contain the virus, we DO NOT want any students/staff members coming into the clinic for this testing.

Please use our Telemedicine services and the Health Center staff will assess your situation. If you are considered to be a possible carrier, you will be advised to go to the nearest Quest Diagnostics lab to be tested. Again, we will not have any swabs for testing on site as we do not want to increase exposure of the virus to other students/staff, so please use our Telemedicine services.
