HELP END FOOD INSECURITY AT FOLSOM LAKE COLLEGE
#GivingTuesday is November 27!
This #GIVINGTUESDAY give a gift to help us sustain the Falcon Food Pantry, and make a significant impact in the lives of our students. You can also donate healthy, easy-to-open, non-perishable food items at the following drop-off points:
Office of Philanthropy, FL1-9 (Aspen Hall)
The Harris Center for the Arts
Donation boxes throughout campus
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.
