Warrior Food Pantry

We have a new location and are operating from the Activities Building in MBBM 137


NEW Drive-Through Distribution 


Starting March 24th, 2020

Due to the COVID 19, the Warrior Pantry has made some changes to protect both students and staff, while still being able to utilize the Warrior Pantry in a safe way.

We will be offering a pre-packaged bag filled with various food items for our students to pick up from the Warrior Pantry during our new operating hours. This is our new, "Drive-Through Grab-A-Bag", policy that will allow us to keep the Warrior Pantry open and serve our students during this difficult time.

Students will have the option to drive through Parking Lot B and pick up their bag at the large white canopy where there will be several Warrior Pantry pop-up tents that will be in place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 11:00am-2:00pm.  

Parking Lot B can be accessed from Manhattan Beach Blvd.

About Warrior Pantry

The El Camino College Warrior Pantry was established through the leadership of the Student Equity Advisory Council, Associated Students Organization, and the Inter-Club Council, with the support from the Student Development Office and Student Equity Program.

A number of ECC students face serious financial challenges, and often find it difficult to support themselves while also paying for college. Research indicates that students without proper nutrition can have trouble focusing on school work and often worry about where they will find their next meal. The Warrior Pantry offers support for our students in a comfortable setting.  

The Warrior Pantry will assist students facing food insecurity, provide toiletries, offer access to a computer, and connect students to additional resources in a supportive environment and judgment-free zone. These services can be used by all currently enrolled El Camino College students needing assistance.



  • Students may be in enrolled at ECC for the Fall 2019 semester to receive winter services
  • Students must show a valid ECC ID card with the current semester sticker (visit MBBM 131, Student Development Office to get a free ID card)
  • Students must submit online Pantry Registration Form


Item donations are accepted year-round and will directly support ECC students. If you would like to donate food items to the Warrior Pantry, donation bins are located throughout campus:

  • Student Development Office
  • Bookstore
  • MESA
  • Social Sciences Division Office
  • Schauerman Library
