Food Drive Contest

Join the Race to Stock our Student Health Center Food Bank!
The Student Health Center Food Bank was established in 2013 to help feed Cerritos College students in need. As the Health Center continues to serve more students, supplies are low and need to be replenished. Join the race to fill the Food Bank to help our students stay healthy and in school.

Spring 2015 - Food Drive Contest:

Thank you all for participating in the Food Drive Contest. Financial Aid has won the first round of the Food Drive Contest with a total of 222 food items collected. Great job financial aid! Our top 4 groups were at or above 100 food items. Awesome top 4!

But everyone helped get us to an amazing 1046 food items collected so far. This means that 52 hungry students will have food for a week. So the real winners really are our students and their families. We are still going strong and wave #2 of the contest starts next week. I hope you will continue to participate.
