Bakersfield College’s Renegade Pantry received a $20,000 grant from the Kern Partnership for Children and Families to help alleviate food insecurity among college students.
The grant provides $2,000 per month for 10 consecutive months to boost the pantry’s inventory with nutritious foods and non-alcoholic beverages, according to a press release.
“Our goal at the Renegade Pantry is to ensure students’ basic needs are met for them to stay focused on their academics and career pathways,” said Nicky Damania, BC director of student life. “With the additional funding provided by the Kern Partnership for Children and Families, BC’s Pantry will be able to support more student Renegades through the fall and spring semesters.”
