Jag Kitchen Pantry

Now Open! Room 554/Chula Vista Campus

The SWC Child Development Center, Family Studies Department and Associated Student Organization (ASO) began the Jag Kitchen Food Pantry to assist students facing food insecurity. Now, a campus wide effort, the Jag Kitchen is a safe and judgement-free zone that can be used by currently enrolled SWC students needing assistance. 

The Jag Kitchen is located in Room 554 on the Chula Vista campus. Donations are accepted at the SWC Child Development Center Bldg. 2000 & Room 554, year-round. Donation items are available here. Monetary donations are also accepted and much appreciated.
