Harvest Days 2015

Donate to the Food Pantry

Throughout Harvest Days we will be collecting items of specific need for the JCCC Food Pantry to any of the events listed below and help promote access to nutritious foods for all within the campus and Johnson County communities. Not sure what to bring? We're always short on protein, so please drop off canned meats, tuna, chicken, and meat pasta sauces, peanut butter, and chunky meat soups.
