Around 150 meals were distributed to students in need at Southeast Community College campuses in Beatrice, Lincoln and Milford. Volunteers presented the meals to recipients who drove by designated areas. The food was donated by SCC faculty, staff and students.

All three campuses have food pantries for students in need. In addition to food, personal hygiene items also were donated and distributed. There is always a need for donations, especially this time of year, said Kevin Forch, SCC’s Director of Student Development & Engagement.

“We still have about 700 non-perishable food and hygiene items in the Lincoln Campus Food Pantry at the moment,” Forch said. “We will always take easy-to-make items like pasta, rice, soup, beans, canned fruits and vegetables, cereal, oatmeal, peanut butter, applesauce, and fruit cups. We also get a lot of requests for soap, shampoo, toothpaste/toothbrushes, and sanitary items.”

Food and personal hygiene items can be dropped off at each campus’s food pantry location. Monetary donations can be made through the SCC Foundation at https://www.southeast.edu/scc-food-pantry/
