RCSJ believes that no student should go to class hungry! The Pantry is the campus-based food pantry with a location on each campus. Free and confidential, The Pantry provides both quick meal-on-the-go options and take-home grocery items for students experiencing food insecurity. Household and hygiene staples like toilet paper, toothbrushes, and period care products are also available.
Who can access the Food Pantries?
Current students of both RCSJ campuses, Cumberland and Gloucester, who are experiencing food insecurity may access The Pantry on their respective campuses.
How can a student gain access to The Pantry?
The Pantry is located within the Center for Wellness and Support (CWS) on both the Gloucester and Cumberland campuses. Students will meet with CWS staff who will collect their information and briefly assess for any other support they may need. Students can drop-in or schedule an appointment ahead of time by emailing
