Student Basic Needs Resources

Food Pantry

At Skagit Valley College, we understand that food insecurity is a very real concern for many students. In an effort to help address this concern, we will be providing limited food resources distribution once a week at the Mount Vernon and Oak Harbor campuses. The Skagit Valley College food pantry is operated on the Whidbey and Mount Vernon Campuses as a collaboration of the Office of Student Life, Associated Students of Skagit Valley College (ASSVC), and the Community Basic Needs Navigator. The food pantry is supported through community donations, staff payroll deductions, club support, collaboration with community food resource organizations, and support from the ASSVC.

Current Food Pantry Hours

  • Thursdays, Noon–4 p.m., Mount Vernon campus
  • Thursdays, 9 a.m.–4 p.m., Whidbey Island campus

If you have any questions, please email: [email protected].
