The Basic Needs Center is intended to be a one-stop, single location for students to access basic needs services and resources linking students to on- and off-campus housing, food, mental health, and other basic needs. Students will be required to sign in each time they visit the Basic Needs Center. Students are allowed 1 snack & drink per day. Bag of food: You can receive a bag of food from the pantry two weeks. Note on Housing: At this time Merced College Basic Needs does not provide financial assistance for housing. Please see the housing tab for off campus resources.
Bag of Food
Students will be required to sign in each time they visit the Basic Needs Center and are allowed 1 snack & 1 drink per day.
You will now also have the choice of a bag of food from the pantry or a $50.00 Grocery card every two weeks. Once grocery cards are gone there may not be more.
If you face challenges securing food, housing or other basic needs, you are not alone, and Merced College can help during this time of crisis. We invite you to learn about the many resources available to support you through Merced College’s Basic Needs Center (Food Pantry). You can visit us in person at the Merced Campus in Room #104 of the Student Union Building and at the Los Banos Campus in Building A, Room #129. Or visit our basic needs website for more information.
