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 drive-thru distribution with a pre-packaged bag filled with various food items for our students to pick up from the Warrior Pantry, "Cupboard," during our new operating hours. We are now offering fresh produce for our students to choose from as well. 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 who were registered for the 2020/fall semester, the current 2021/winter session, or the upcoming 2021/spring semester will have the opportunity to drive through parking lot B and pick up their food bags at the large white canopy on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:00am-2:00pm. Students will need to register for the Warrior Pantry once during the fiscal year to receive items from the pantry.
Parking Lot B can be accessed from Manhattan Beach Blvd.

The History of The 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.
