Beginning September 20, Cuesta College will become a Neighborhood Food Distribution site for the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County. Both the San Luis Obispo and North County campuses will host food distribution sites where participants can receive one bag of pantry food and one bag of fresh produce each month.

“Our goal is to provide a safe and comfortable place for students and community members who need some help putting food on the table,” said Cuesta College Student Life and Leadership Coordinator Anthony Gutierrez. “We have partnered with the Food Bank Coalition to provide nutritious food to those who need it most.”
