Student Food Pantry

Food pantry for JCC students

Jamestown Community College maintains a food pantry for all students on the Jamestown Campus, Cattaraugus County Campus, and North County Center. We have an assortment of donated food items and hygiene products that we are happy to share.

Any student in need can receive items. Services are private, confidential, and free.
