Supporting students through all aspects of their education is a priority at El Camino College. The Warrior Pantry is just one of our many resources providing vital assistance to those in need.
The Warrior Pantry offers healthy food items and toiletries to students to help them succeed in their classwork without distractions caused by food insecurity. The Pantry is currently offering drive-thru and walk-up distribution service.
The Warrior Pantry accepts both monetary and item donations year round.
For fall 2021, the Warrior Pantry is open August 31 - December 16.

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."
