Mental Health, Food Insecurity, & Other Resources For Students
WCCC has resources available for current students experiencing food insecurity through our Golden Eagle’s Safety Nest Program.
We know that if you’re hungry, you can’t learn.
1. ShopRite gift cards are available to students every 30 days. Please see or email Lisa Stoll, the Librarian at [email protected], or Karen Hillyer, Associate Professor at [email protected]. A current WCCC ID card is required.
2. Students can get vouchers for the Café on campus during the week. To get a Café voucher, please go to Student Services. Again, a current WCCC ID card is required.
These resources are made available through support and funding of the WCCC Foundation, the WCCC Board of Trustees, and fund raising. If you’d like to contribute to this effort, please contact Associate Professor Karen Hillyer at [email protected].
