Students not having enough food to eat (food insecurity) is a hidden crisis on college campuses across the United States. It affects institutions ranging from private universities to our community colleges. A gift to the Falcon Food Pantry can ensure that fresh and nutritious food is available to any student who is faced with hunger.


In 2010, the FLC Health and Wellness Center observed many students coming to school hungry because they didn't have the financial resources to buy food. Some were subsisting on one incomplete meal a day, and some hadn't eaten in days. In response, the FLC Food Closet was established and has been providing non-perishable, nutritious foods to students in need ever since.


Students who struggle to eat will struggle to focus, struggle to compete academically, and struggle to graduate. Consequently, these same students may struggle to land suitable employment, repay loans, and in general, never transcend the conditions that college was meant to cure. If a student does not have to worry as much about providing for fundamental needs, this could improve focus on their studies and therefore improve student learning, retention, and success. 


Your generosity and involvement is an integral part of our students' success every year.
