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.


BFN Normal Operation

BFN will continue to offer its normal distribution for all Albany and Berkeley residents at their normal time. Students who fit this criteria can pick up food at this time if they so wish.

Address: 1001 University Ave., Berkeley, CA 94710
(Mondays – Thursdays 10:00 am – 2:00 pm)
(Monday and Wednesday 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm)
(1st & 3rd Saturday 10:00 am – 12:00 pm)

Starting 5/4/2020, Berkeley City College can pick up food on Mondays between 12-3pm. In order to pick up food, face covering is required. BCC students can come 2x per month in additional to all the distribution on Mondays.
