IVC employees partake in social distance fun after food distribution.
Imperial Valley College Kitchen has continued to provide imme-diate, short-term and long-term interventions to address food in-security experienced by our stu-dents. IVC Kitchen is also a USDA distribution site for Imperial Valley Food Bank.
The pantry has remained open during the COVID-19 pandemic and staff have worked diligently and creatively to serve these im-pacted students. They are provid-ing drive-through assistance and contactless home deliveries for stu-dents without transportation since IV Transit transportation does not route its way to Imperial Valley College due to COVID-19.
During the pandemic, IVC Kitch-en has seen a significant increase in requests for food assistance, hy-giene items, financial support, lap-tops, internet and school supplies. IVC Kitchen recently conducted a needs assessment and found that most of our students affected by the pandemic ranked food, hygiene items, and school supplies as the most pressing needs.
Imperial Valley College Kitchen surprised students with pumpkins in the spirit of Halloween.
