The Renegade Pantry began in 2009, when there was a massive cut to California Community College special needs programs, which led to a growing need among students. SGA responded back to the needs of their constituents and developed the Renegade Pantry program. The Pantry's main goal is to help maintain the health and welfare of Bakersfield College students through organized college, community sponsorships, and donations of nonperishable food items.
The Renegade Pantry, a program offered by the Office of Student Life, focuses on alleviating food insecurity, hunger, and poverty among current Bakersfield College students. We provide food to students regardless of their race, religion, sex, gender, age, sexual orientation, or disability.
Eliminating hunger one meal at a time.
Access to adequate food is basic human right, and the attendance of college should not forfeit this right.
