Panther Care Program

Doing well in college can be challenging if you are stressed about having enough to eat, or being able to pay your rent. That’s why Chaffey College has the Panther Care Program, introduced in 2019 to help meet the basic needs and wellbeing of students by providing what we call “Panther Essentials.” Need a little help with groceries this month? Chaffey can assist you with nutritious food through the Panther Pantry. Are you worried about finding a place to sleep at night? The program can refer you to organizations that will help get you off the street. And in the case of a sudden crisis, Panther Care can also assist with emergency funds to help you stay on the path toward your academic goals.

Panther Care Program Application

Program Goals:

  • To support and empower students by assisting them in meeting basic needs as they work to complete their educational goals
  •  To provide students with immediate support during an unexpected emergency through meals, referrals for short-term housing, and emergency grant funds so they can continue with their academics and persist at Chaffey College
  • To connect students with ongoing counseling and assistance through college resources and community partnerships


Panther Pantry

The Panther Pantry offers non-perishable food items for all active Chaffey College students. To access the pantry, students must present their Chaffey College student ID and fill out a short form on-site. 

Panther Pantry is currently a drive-through model hosted on all three campus locations.

Students are allowed to pick up one bag of pre-arranged goods once per distribution date.

First come, first served. Limited bags available
