Pirate Pantry

Founded in 2018, Independence Community College’s on-campus food pantry provides essential foods and toiletry items to students in need. The purpose of the Pirate Pantry is to address food insecurity for our students. Nationally, around 48 percent of students face food insecurity, with 22 percent regularly reporting they experience hunger.

We know students can’t do their best work in class on an empty stomach and ICC is committed to helping students achieve their educational goals!

Location: Lower Level of the Student Union, room 110

Hours: Tuesdays 9AM – 1PM; Wednesdays 1PM – 3PM; Thursdays 11AM – 1PM
