The Maricopa County Community College District is excited to announce a $20,000 grant from the Kroger Co. Foundation to support food pantry initiatives district-wide.
The mission of the Kroger Co. Foundation is “to Feed the Human Spirit” and they focus their support on organizations that work to end hunger, improve food security, and provide balanced meals to families in the most need.
MCCCD will use the $20,000 grant to support existing college food pantries and to create new ones. Currently, eight of the ten Maricopa colleges provide a food pantry for students. Two colleges are in the process of planning and developing their pantries.
