Emergency Food Pantries

Central Piedmont Service Learning has partnered with Loaves & Fishes to establish an Emergency Food Pantry at several Central Piedmont campuses.

The emergency food pantries are able to provide individuals and households within the Central Piedmont community with two days worth of food per visit. The amount of food you receive depends on how many people live in your household. You are eligible to visit the food pantry two times each month. Before the second visit, you must complete a benefits screening through the Central Piedmont Single Stop Office. Please note that our pantries only carry non-perishable items If you need a larger food pantry, please review a list of Loaves & Fishes full size pantry locations and hours.

If you are a student interested in becoming a food pantry coordinator, please fill out the food pantry coordinator application (PDF)  and the food pantry coordinator contract (PDF) and return it to the food pantry contact at your campus of interest.
