GaelPantry/Food Bank Produce Truck Pop Up Event

In a special collaboration, this Thursday, October 29, the GaelPantry staff and student leaders of the Mission & Ministry Center along with the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano are bringing a produce & food distribution truck to campus. The truck will be with us from 1-2pm that day.

All SMC students, faculty, staff, and ABLE and Sodexo employees are welcome to visit on foot or drive through (right hand lane as you enter the campus) to pick up:

  • FREE 5 lb bags of pre-packed produce
  • FREE 20 lb boxes of non-perishable foods (drive through is best for this!)

We don't usually collect personal information when anyone uses the GaelPantry, but for the sake of contact tracing we will need to keep track of names. This information will ONLY be used in the event it is necessary. Otherwise, the MMC and the GP team are using the information to track use, not your identity.

Everyone is welcome to utilize this resourceespecially those who have experienced economic challenges due to the pandemic, or any other reason. As we say at the GaelPantry, "Know the Need!"

Please plan to swing by (in your mask) to see us (in our masks) if you are able, and thank you to everyone who helped make this opportunity available to our SMC community!!
