Join CalCoast Credit Union’s Pack the Pantry Food Drive! Help Cal Coast and the Food Bank collect much-needed food items for local college food pantries and the students they serve from Nov. 4 – Nov. 18!  

College Hunger in San Diego County

Nearly 50% of college students in San Diego face food insecurity. This means they do not have reliable access to food to sustain a steady and nutrient-rich diet, which negatively impacts their academic performance.

To address this important problem, college campuses across the county have established food pantries to feed students in need. The challenge? Keeping those food pantry shelves stocked at all times.

2. Donate Nonperishable Food Items at a CalCoast Credit Union Branch Locations
