We are able to stock the food pantry thanks to donations from students, staff and community members. If you would like to donate non-perishable, unopened and unexpired items you can drop them off at the food pantry nearest you.

Please see this map for a location of the Salem Campus food pantry, located in Building 2.

All vehicles need to have a parking permit. If you are a visitor to the college you can obtain a visitor's parking permit at the info booth located outside of Building 1, visible if you drive via Cooley Drive.

For a quick donation drop off, we can meet you by the Blue Lot to unload your donations if you give us a call in advance.
