Pirates' Pantry Relief Project  every other Thursday!

Pirates' Pantry remains available to provide all students with supplemental food items during the COVID-19 health crisis. To ensure the safety of everyone, we will now offer pre-packaged food items. Students that sign-up for this service will be able to drive up or walk up to get a food box. The logistics of the food distribution will be sent to those who complete the required Pirates' Pantry Food Box Application. 

Before Your First Visit

All MJC currently enrolled students must complete a Pirates' Pantry All Access Application 2020-2021. This form will allow us to track and report necessary information to the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office for program review.  As part of our verification process you will be required to provide your MJC Student ID number and show your photo I.D. each visit before receiving your free food items.

*** For FALL SEMESTER Food Box Distributions, after we have your All Access application on file, you are required to complete an APPOINTMENT ONLINE FORM each time. ***

The Food Box Appointment Online Form will also be emailed to all Pirates' Pantry All Access Applicants. 

Please complete the Pirates' Pantry All Access Application 2020-2021 before participating in any Pirates' Pantry food distribution program even if you have an appointment.
