Clark State to host monthly food pantry


Clark State Community College will host the Second Harvest Food Bank Mobile Food Pantry on a monthly basis.

Clark State’s primary concern is for the well-being of students, but the mobile food pantry service is available to anyone who meets the income criteria.

Funding from a grant has allowed Second Harvest to offer the Mobile Food Pantry at no cost to the hosts.

Clients must self-report their income, bring picture ID, proof of current address (such as a bill or piece of mail, if address on ID is not current) and their own bags or boxes.
