The Student Food Pantry
A student food pantry is located on the Jamestown Campus, Cattaraugus County Campus, and North County Center. We have a limited selection of basic food items available to any student in need without qualification. Food items are being purchased by Christ First United Methodist Church from the Food Bank of WNY. Christ First UMC runs the Northside Food Pantry, whom we have worked with to provide a selection of items that will be most useful to students.
Should there be a need, you can contact any one of the people below to distribute food mid-week. One of our volunteers will arrange to meet the student and distribute the food. The pantries are operated on a voluntary basis so please be considerate of the volunteer’s time and understand if immediate assistance is not available.
