BHC Food Pantries

BHC Food Pantries

Quad-Cities Campus Hawk’s Cupboard & East Campus The Kitchen food pantries

Black Hawk College has partnered with River Bend Foodbank to provide perishable and non-perishable food to any BHC student. According to Hunger on Campus, 50 percent of community college students and 47 percent of four-year college students reported food insecurity. Twenty-five percent and 20 percent (respectively) had very low food security. Even if you feel you have enough to eat, sometimes redistributing financial resources can help. Feel free to visit either BHC food pantry and use the money you had reserved for food for a different need.

There are two ways students/employees can get pre-bagged food:
