Students stuffing bags.

Food Pantry

The Yakima Valley College Food Pantry is funded and operated by students for students facing food insecurity. The pantry is open to any person that is in need. Students can pick up a pre-packaged bag of groceries, and special needs items like baby supplies in the Student Life Offices on either the Yakima or Grandview campus during regular operating hours. We also stock quick snacks and meals for students who need to eat before or between classes.
