The JAG Kitchenette/Food Pantry at the Higher Education Center at San Ysidro (HECSY) is part of a campus wide effort at Southwestern College to assist students facing food insecurities.

Located in the Student Center at the HECSY, the JAG Kitchenette provides students with breakfast in a judgement-free zone that can be used by currently enrolled SWC students needing assistance.

The JAG Kitchenette is funded entirely by donations. Food donations can be made in person at the Higher Education Center at San Ysidro. A list of donation items is available here and monetary donations are also accepted and much appreciated!
