CAC Food Pantry ImageCentral Arizona College recognizes the reality of food insecurity among our student population and the extent to which hunger affects our communities.

In the United States, an estimated 40 million people, including 12 million children struggle with hunger.  In Pinal county alone, nearly 60,000 people struggle with food insecurity on a regular basis.

The CAC Food Pantry is part of a larger initiative intended to improve student success and increase upward mobility by combating the negative effects of hunger within our community.

CAC Food Pantry locations are continually being re-stocked and we invite those in need to visit and take items as needed.
