Santa Barbara City College


The Student Equity Committee tackles food insecurity, and Mrs. Johnson, SBCC’s Dual Enrollment director, helped to establish the first college collaboration with the Santa Barbara County Food Bank. Mr. Green, a professor and Director of the Center of Sustainability at SBCC, also facilitated SBCC's food producing campus garden to provide food services and implemented a food scrap collection for composting. In Fall of 2017, SBCC held its first bi-monthly Food Share Distribution Day, serving over 480 students in one hour. The college also served 1,200 students in the first operating quarter of the student food pantry. SBCC will engage in social media outreach and marketing and more broadly share existing workshops to help us take our work on developing innovative solutions to the challenge of creating a sustainable and equitable food systems to the next level.
