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.

The Warrior Pantry's grab-and-go drive-thru is fast and easy to get groceries. The staff is excellent and supportive every time. This program is a huge help to my family."

What to Expect at the Pantry

The Warrior Pantry provides students with prepackaged food, fresh produce, and toiletries in a safe and comfortable environment.
