Chesapeake College Cares: Corner of Care
Every student has worries. Food should never be one of them. We can help!
The Corner of Care is an on-campus food pantry for students. The Corner of Care is an anonymous resource located in the Caroline College Center, Room C217 in Wye Mills, and in the Main Office at the Cambridge Center. It is open during normal building operating hours. Inside our pantry, you can find toiletries, beverages, food, a toaster oven, a refrigerator, and bags to use if you need to take a few items with you. All we ask is that you keep the space clean!
Hours of Operation: Monday – Friday, 8:30am – 4:30pm
Not on campus? Don’t worry, we can still assist!
