Prowler Pantry Taskforce Group

The New Prowler Pantry

Wilkes Community College acknowledges that some of its students face food insecurity, and some do not have access to transportation during the school day. To help these students, WCC now offers the Prowler Pantry, a new, no-cost, campus food pantry. The Prowler Pantry stocks items like granola bars, individual heat-and-serve items such as ravioli, fresh fruit, yogurt, crackers, and other convenient items.

The pantry is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Students must be currently enrolled at WCC and present their student identification to access the pantry. The pantry is located on the Wilkes Campus in Thompson Hall Room 135 (first floor).
