Helping Hands Food Pantry

Ocean County College strives to provide a hunger free campus community. At Helping Hands we provide Ocean County College and Kean Ocean students with non-academic support to help them succeed. In the food pantry, we offer snacks, drinks, a breakfast bar, and meals to students in need. Our services also include resources for financial/SNAP benefit assistance, referrals for housing support, and more.

If you, or a student you know, needs assistance with basic needs, please contact us at or 732-255-0400 ext. 2205.

Helping Hands accepts donations all year. Please contact Kate Moreno at to schedule a drop-off for all donations. Special arrangements are available for larger donations. Monetary donations can be made online at the Foundation Donations site. Please choose “Helping Hands” from the drop-down menu.

During off-hours, donations can be dropped off at the Student Life Box Office located in the Larson Student Center, Building #8.
