Derrick Coleman, Staff Writer

The kickoff of the bi-monthly Regional Food Bank, which offers Cerritos College students food they may need, took place on Sept. 18.

Although students on campus have access to the food bank, Cerritos College President Jose Fierro, said they also want the surrounding community to come and get the food if there’s a need for it.

According to Fierro, “The main reason [for the food bank] is because many of our students, community members, and faculty members.

The food bank has been coming to the campus for almost a year.

Fierro said the district was able to bring them on campus, but in order to continue offering the services there were requirements to be met.

He also said they are constantly looking into additional services that they can provide. He said, “It is very important for us to focus on community.”

Students Activities Coordinator Amna Jara, said that more information can be found on the Cerritos College website under resources.
