Grocery Bag Distribution

In light of the current COVID-19 crisis, the Berkeley City College Food Pantry (BCCFP) is collaborating with the Berkeley Food Network (BFN) to continue distributing food for students. This will ensure that BCC students retain the capacity to receive prepared grocery bags with food inside them.
