Grand Rapids Community College students challenged with food insecurity during the coronavirus crisis can pick up bags of food through drive-by pickups during the next three weeks.

GRCC has planned three food distribution opportunities — one per week for the next three weeks — with bags provided on a first-come, first-served basis, according to information from GRCC.

Food will be delivered through curbside pickup on Lyon Street at the brick-paved portion of the north end of Juan R. Olivarez Student Plaza.

Dates and times are:

  • Tuesday, March 24, from 4-6:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, April 1, from noon to 2 p.m. 
  • Monday, April 6, from 10 a.m. to noon.

Much of the food has been donated by GRCC employees as well as the Secchia Institute for Culinary Education and GRCC Campus Dining.

People also can support the food pantry by donating the Grand Rapids Community College Foundation. Using the online donation page, look for the designation drop-down menu, and select “Student Food Pantry” or “Student Emergency Fund.”  The Student Life team also is listing other food resources in Kent and Ottawa counties for students on the GETHELP website. Student Life is collaborating with other campus groups that have been part of a Campus Action Project, including TRIO, the Counseling and Career Center, the College Success Center and others.
