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.

Due to the Santa Clara County Shelter in Place order, the Student Affairs and Activities physical office will be closed until further notice, at least through spring 2020. However, we will continue to provide services to students via email, phone, and video calls during regular business hours. Appointments are available on specific days only. To schedule an appointment, contact us at (650) 949-7241 or via at studentaffairs@fhda.edu.
