The Student Lead Food Pantry is a TSI student service dedicated to reducing hunger among St. Clair College Chatham Campus students, helping to enable the full participation of students facing barriers of food insecurity. With the rising costs of tuition, housing, childcare, and food, many students are struggling. We provide essential support to St. Clair -Chatham Campus students. Our team works hard to break the stigma around being food insecure and accessing support services.
We also have campaigns and events to educate and advocate for local and global issues related to, but not limited to, food insecurity, hunger, and poverty. Our programming and services provide opportunities for student engagement, personal development, and leadership!
TSI envisions a campus where students, faculty, staff, and community members can:
– Access affordable and nutritious food in a supportive and inclusive environment
– Develop awareness about local and global issues of food insecurity affecting our communities
– Be a part of a supportive, inclusive, and healthy campus
Our food hamper service provides students in need with a grocery bag of food for 1-2 days. Students in need can request a food hamper by filling out a food hamper request form online or visiting our office.
Our foodbank is located at our office in Room 154 past the TSI offices. Students are welcome to come by the food pantry during our hours of operation to take what they need. We want to be able to serve as many students as we can, so please be mindful of what you take. Food Bank hours are Monday to Friday from 10 AM to 3 PM.
