Joyful Meals Food Distribution


Golden West College’s Food Pantry, The Stand, is a resource for all currently-enrolled students to shop (at no charge) for grocery items made available to meet their nutritional needs.

The Stand is distributing food boxes during the campus closure!

Although The Stand is temporarily closed due to COVID-19, we are still serving our students. The Stand is offering a drive-thru food distribution in collaboration with Second Harvest Food Bank each Tuesday on campus.

The Food Boxes are perishable and must be picked up between 11:00 am - 12:00 pm.


    1. Sign up each week to receive food boxes using the request link below.
    2. The deadline to submit a request is every Monday by 5:00 pm. Any requests received after Monday at 5:00 pm will be added to the following week’s distribution.
    3. You will receive an email on Wednesday of each week confirming your order with pick-up instructions. If you do not receive an email, your order has not been confirmed.
    4. The food boxes will be available for pick-up the following Tuesday between 11:00 am 12:00 pm.

Example of food box order submission and pick-up:
Request submitted by Monday, July 5, 2021 at 5:00 pm.
Confirmation email will be sent on Wednesday, July 7, 2021.
Food Boxes will be available for pickup on Tuesday, July 13, 2021.

The food items that we receive from Second Harvest vary from week to week, but may contain a combination of the following items:

  • Dairy 
    (butter, cheese, cottage cheese, yogurt, milk, etc.)
  • Protein 
    (breaded chicken, pork taco meat, chicken meatballs, etc.)
  • Produce 
    (potatoes, onions, apples, melons, celery, cabbage, carrots, etc.)
  • Dry Goods
    (canned fruit, rice, oatmeal, beans, peanut butter, pasta, etc.)

These food boxes are perishable. Our goal is to ensure that none of the food goes to waste. Due to food handling procedures, we are required to monitor the temperature of the food boxes. For this reason, all food boxes must be picked up by 12:00 pm sharp. If you are unable to make it by 12:00 pm, your order may be redistributed to other students.

The Stand is located in Forum II, Rooms 104 or for additional information call (714) 892-7711 ext. 51277.

These programs are made possible through the generosity of the GWC community and are available to GWC students only.
