The Prowler Pantry first opened during the fall 2017 semester with the goal of promoting student success by ensuring that all students have access to food while they are on campus. Since opening, the pantry has served hundreds of students. WCC has partnered with Wilkes Ministry of H.O.P.E. and Second Harvest Food Bank to ensure the sustainability of this program.
