It Starts with A Hunger Free LCCC
In Lorain County more than 40,300 people struggled with food insecurity* last year – including many LCCC students.
LCCC students have access to the on-campus food pantry, Commodore Cupboard, but sometimes that’s not enough. To help relieve some of the stress related to food insecurity for students, the college has pledged to create a #HungerFreeLCCC.
To accomplish this, the college has partnered with local organizations like Chicks Against Hunger and will build on the services offered by the Commodore Cupboard to create a discreet process with expanded services designed to more holistically serve those in need. This initiative will also significantly maximize opportunities for LCCC to connect unused food to those who can benefit on our campus.
*Food insecurity means being uncertain of having, or unable to acquire, enough food to meet the needs of all members of the household due to insufficient resources. Food-insecure households include those with low food security and very low food security.
