Central Arizona College Food Pantries Now Open to Assist Students


In the United States, an estimated 40 million people, including 12 million children struggle with hunger. In Pinal County alone, nearly 60,000 people struggle with food insecurity on a regular basis. The CAC Food Pantry is part of a larger initiative intended to improve student success and increase upward mobility by combating the negative effects of hunger.    

CAC Food Pantry locations are now open at all Central Arizona College library locations. To receive assistance, students may visit any library location and ask an employee for access to the CAC Food Pantry. No identification or personal information will be required to receive goods.   

San Tan Valley Library location and hours are: 

  • Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.
  • 3736 E. Bella Vista Rd. San Tan Valley, AZ 85143

*Please note that the library is closed Friday through Sunday.


CAC Food Pantry locations are continually being re-stocked. Those in need are invited to visit and take items as needed.  

For those interested in helping to support the CAC Food Pantries, canned or non-perishable items can be dropped off to any CAC Library. The most requested items include Peanut Butter & other nut butters, dry pasta, pasta sauce, ramen cups, canned meat/fish, granola bars, cereal, canned fruits and vegetables, and toiletries (soap, deodorant, toothbrushes, and toothpaste).  

Monetary donations may be made through the CAC Foundation at Select “Other” under “Please direct my donation to:” and note CAC Food Pantry in “Additional Information.”
