Western States Bank Food Pantry

Thanks to the generous support of Western States Bank, students at Laramie Country Community College have more support when it comes to fighting food insecurity.

The Western States Bank Food Pantry provides free food and toiletry items to students who are in need and may not otherwise have consistent access to these items throughout their time at LCCC.

It can be used by any current LCCC student with a valid student ID.

The pantry is located in the Crossroads Building near the Student Life Office. 

Food Pantry Guidelines: LCCC students are welcome to come to the Food Pantry two times per week. You can choose up to ten food items and two personal hygiene items. Freezer items are limited to two items per visit and count towards the 10 total allotted food items.

The Pantry has been open since 2012. Originally funded by the LCCC Foundation's Golden Apple Grant project, the pantry started as a service learning project under the direction of now-retired faculty member Jeri Griego. Since that time, many employees, students and community members have supported the food pantry with donations of money or items.

In 2018, Western States Bank provided an endowed gift to provide long-term support for the Food Pantry.

Anyone interested in donating food or seeking to organize a food drive for the Western States Bank Food Pantry can contact Zeke Sorenson or Connie Gates for more information. Monetary cash donations can be made through the Laramie County Community College Foundation Office.
