Pirates' Pantry is a program open to all currently enrolled MJC students. We aim to meet the basic needs of students through the availability of free food as well as on and off-campus resources. We strive for a hunger-free MJC!

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pirates' Pantry adjusted its process from in-person services to a drive-by model, called the Pirates' Pantry Relief Project.
