RCC Relief and Assistance Programs
The Help You Need
Need help? You’re not alone! A recent study of college students found 42% were food insecure, 46% housing insecure, 12% homeless and half struggle just to get enough to eat. There is help — from counseling to the free student food pantry to complimentary shower and laundry service available on campus.
Hungry Tigers Food Pantry
Find the nutritious food you need and learn how to make the most of what you have. Programs exist to help you. While you may not qualify for some, the Tiger Food pantry is available for every RCC student, no questions asked. Located in the Welcome Center in the Dr. Charles A. Kane Student Services & Administration building. For more information, call: (951) 325-3636.
You are not alone. From health concerns to support when you’re not feeling well or vulnerable or in crisis, as part of the RCC community you have access to the services and education you need to maintain your well-being to succeed in college. On campus, or in Riverside, you have access to everything from confidential checkups, immunizations, low cost prescriptions, crisis intervention and counseling.
