This program is for college and university students (undergrad or graduate) who do not have enough food. San Bernardino county is host to at least 14 colleges and universities. With rising tuition and school fees, escalating transportation and housing costs, and skyrocketing food prices, even students with scholarships, grants, and jobs are having difficulty making ends meet. Some students are even responsible for feeding their parents and siblings.
Helping Hands Pantry wants to provide food assistance to enable college undergraduates and graduate students to finish their education, and not have to drop out just to eat.
