College can be challenging. Getting healthy food doesn’t have to be.

We are happy to announce that West Valley College has partnered with Second Harvest of Silicon Valley to address student hunger! We will be working together to offer food assistance support to West Valley College students and the community.

West Valley offers three types of food assistance to students:
