Panther Food Pantry

Panther Pantry Logo

The mission of the Panther Food Pantry is to improve the quality of life among students, faculty and staff on the campus of SUNY Old Westbury by providing access to food and other necessities for those in need. 

The Food Pantry at the PCCC stocks nonperishable foods including everything from quick snacks to the ingredients for full meals. We cater to the Panther Community at large and offer items to meet students' basic and personal hygiene. We operate on a first-come first-serve basis and always welcome the opportunity for collaboration on Food Drive initiatives to support our mission of addressing Food Insecurity in the Panther Community.
