Areas of Assistance

Food Pantry

Onondaga Community College has a food pantry on campus that is open to all students.  We can provide you with food assistance short-term as well as to connect you with community and government resources that will help you with food assistance long-term. The Food Pantry is open every Monday and Thursday from 2-4pm throughout the academic year. Individuals can schedule appointments online or in-person to streamline access, avoid long lines and to provide a personalized approach service.

Transportation Assistance

If you’re having difficulties coming to and from campus to attend to your academic schedule, we can work with you to identify and receive transportation assistance.  Whether your transportation is not available for a particular day or you’re looking at a long-term transportation challenge, we will work to help identify options and resources to make getting back and forth to campus less stressful.
