Hunger Response

It’s hard to focus on your future when you’re hungry. If you’re forced to decide between eating or education, grab a free meal and learn about other food programs that can help you.

Fighting Hunger on Campus

Archer's Market & Brown Bag Café 

A Meramec student idea that has turned into a multi-campus staple, the Archer's Market and Brown Bag Café food pantries offer hungry students a meal and the security of knowing they have a whole community actively supporting them.

All current STLCC students facing food insecurity are eligible to stop by for a bagged meal at the Archer's Market or Brown Bag Café. Simply contact the food pantry on your campus to sign up.
