On August 18th, the Camden County College Office of Workforce Development and Continuing Education assisted in organizing the Camden County government employee retreat by offering continuing education classes to attendees and overseeing a team-building exercise. In addition, the Workforce Development and Continuing Education team coordinated a food donation of 2,924 cans of non-perishables to the Camden County College Food Pantry from the employees and administration of Camden County government.
The Camden County College Food Pantry thanks the employees and administration of Camden County for their extremely generous donation. The Food Pantry also thanks the CCC Office of Workforce Development and Continuing Education for their assistance in securing the donation. The one-day donation equals what the pantry typically receives in an entire semester. Over 50% of community college students nationwide reported that they had been food insecure at one time. This donation will help students overcome this educational barrier that has been linked to poor academic performance.
The CCC food pantry has locations in Blackwood, Camden, and Cherry Hill, and fights food insecurity by providing students with no-cost food items and supplies. To learn more about the food pantry, and how you can help, please visit www.camdencc.edu/student_life/student-services/the-pantry
