Food Bank Addresses Food Insecurity at Fullerton College

Located in Room 1955, the Chris Lamm & Toni DuBois Memorial Food Bank is open on Tuesdays from noon – 2 p.m. and 4 – 6:30 p.m.

To utilize the food bank, students must be enrolled in at least three units and bring their school schedule along with their school ID. The food bank offers fresh produce, canned goods, hygiene products, school supplies, cold water, and much more. Since the start of the semester, the food bank has served more than 468 students.

Miles Aiello has stepped in as the new food bank coordinator and has several initiatives in place for the academic year. These initiatives include but are not limited to increasing publicity, access, and social events to engage with the college community. One of these events is a collaboration with Fullerton College Athletics to have a fundraiser and food drive at the Oct. 27 football game scheduled at 1 p.m.

Students and faculty are encouraged to follow the food bank on social media on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ or on Instagram at https://instagram.com/fullcoll_foodbank. Students can get up-to-date information on new items, events, and current news related to the campus community.

While the food bank is currently developing donation processes, faculty and/or students interested in donating can email fcfoodbank@fullcoll.edu for donation instructions. Most wanted items include peanut butter, canned fruit, tuna canned chicken, pasta, rice, flavored drinks, dairy products, soup, and individual snacks.

For any other questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to email Miles Aiello at maiello@fullcoll.edu.
