Healthy Food in Grocery BagCentral Lakes College Food Pantry

We are proud that our CLC Food Pantry distributed approximately 17,000 lbs. of food last year. Sadly, the need continues to exceed our ability to keep up. You can make a difference in the life of our students by donating to the CLC Food Pantry. Your gift is 100% tax deductible and every dollar matters!
