LCC Hosts 6th Year Pack the Pantry


September 2, 2021

 

Parsons, KS- The Caring Cardinal Committee (C3) at Labette Community College is hosting a pack the pantry event September 7-27 to celebrate the 6th year of operation for the LCC student food pantry.

The Phi Theta Kappa honor society began the student food pantry in 2015 as part of a College Project to address food insecurities among the college population. The pantry assisted 176 students in the 2020-21 academic year. In August of 2021, the pantry served 124 students, compared to 79 students last August. It is open to students each Tuesday and Wednesday that classes are in session on the Main campus. Pantry items are available at the front desk of the Cherokee Center during operating hours.

Individuals or businesses able to donate food, paper products and cleaning supplies are encouraged to drop items off Cherokee Center, LCC Main campus admissions or print shop.
