Food Pantry Information / Informacion Sobre La Despensa De Alimentos


Registration Information and Safety Protocols – this process has changed a little to make sign-up and distribution easier:

We ask that you pre-register via Eventbrite to get your “ticket” for a specific time slot each week. Select a morning or afternoon time slot  and to save time, you can sign up for multiple weeks in advance; however, please sign up for only one ticket per week as duplicate tickets will take a spot away from another student.

This process helps us to know how many students we will be serving and to have enough groceries on hand. 

You are also welcome to bring thermal bags for cold or frozen items and/or reusable bags.

How to sign up:

  1. Create a profile with Redwood Empire Food Bank – If you already have one, then you are all set.
    1. Contact the Food Bank (707-523-7903) if you need assistance in setting up a profile.
  1. Select an arrival time – you will need your Student ID number. The site will be active until 9 AM on Wednesday mornings.
  • To maintain safety measures, please plan to arrive on time for your selected time slot, but no more than 10 minutes early.
  • Please remember that the pantry needs to be closed from 12-1 so the staff has the opportunity for lunch and to recharge.

When you arrive:

Check in at the CalFresh table with your Student ID number

Check in with Redwood Empire Food Bank (bring your bracelet)

Get food!

 Sneak Peak:  The May 11th bag will have mustard greens, cilantro and strawberries from Shone Farm and from REFB we have Cauliflower, Mushrooms, and Yams as well as many shelf stable items.

Questions? Email (or for Spanish for additional information.

Estimado estudiante de SRJC,

Asegúrese de leer este mensaje completo para obtener detalles importantes.

Información de registro y protocolos de seguridad: este proceso ha cambiado para facilitar un poco el registro y la distribución:

Debe registrarse previamente a través de Eventbrite para obtener su "boleto" para un horario específico cada semana. Seleccione un horario de la mañana o tarde (cerrado para el almuerzo de 12 a 1) todos los miércoles de abril y/o mayo. Para ahorrar tiempo, puede registrarse con varias semanas de anticipación; sin embargo, regístrese para obtener solo un boleto por semana, ya que los boletos duplicados le quitarán un lugar a otro estudiante. También puede traer bolsas térmicas para artículos fríos o congelados y/o bolsas reutilizables

Cómo registrarse:

1.Cree un perfil con Redwood Empire Food Bank: si ya tiene uno, entonces está listo.

A. Si necesita ayuda para configurar su perfil comuníquese con el Banco de Alimentos al (707-523-7903)

B. También contamos con un personal del Redwood Food Bank que ayuda a los estudiantes a configurar su perfil cuando recogen la comida en el SRJC.

2. Seleccione una hora de llegada; necesitará su número de identificación de estudiante. El sitio estará activo hasta las 9 AM los miércoles por la mañana.

  • Para mantener las medidas de seguridad, planee llegar a tiempo para el horario seleccionado, pero no más de 10 minutos antes.
  • Recuerde que la distribución de la despensa estará cerrada de 12 a 1pm para que el personal tenga la oportunidad de almorzar y recargar energías.

Dónde: SRJC, Santa Rosa Campus. La despensa del Quiosco de Bailey está ubicada en el edificio 100 entre el Auditorio Luther Burbank y el Gimnasio Tauzer en la esquina noroeste del campo de fútbol y hay un mapa disponible aquí.
