The Berkeley City College Food Pantry is open on Mondays from 12 pm – 3 pm at 1001 University Avenue, Berkeley. Be sure to wear a mask, bring your student ID, and maintain a six-foot distance from others.

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.

From 12/18/2020 – 1/25/2021, the BCC Food Pantry will be closed. Berkeley Food Network will proceed to offer groceries to BCC students at its main distribution location, 1925 9th Street Berkeley.
