Beaver Food Pantry is currently distributing food once per month. For more information, please contact us via email or by using the link below.

The Beaver Food Pantry is a place where American River College students can get support with food and other basic essentials. We collaborate with local food banks and community agencies to connect students to food and other free or low-cost resources (housing, technology, mental health resources, medical health, etc). We work directly with students to identify the best ways to provide support and maintain strict confidentiality (when possible).

If you would like support or resources from the Beaver Food Pantry, please fill out the “Need
Help Now - Beaver Food Pantry” form and we will contact you.
