Food Locker at FCC

Shelby Carmon, Frederick Community College’s operations manager for student affairs, opens one of the food lockers at the college’s Student Center on Monday. The college set up the system to help give students access to free food on campus.

Frederick Community College last week debuted a new system for distributing free food to students in need.

The college’s 18 “food lockers” are stocked each week with items such as pasta, canned meat and vegetables, peanut butter and more.

I hope they do a follow up story to see if this is successful. My guess it will not be for I think they are developing a solution to a problem that does not exist, "Food Insecurities?"


Developing solutions to problems that don't exist is the "woke" way.


That's good to know that there are no poor people attending FCC. Thanks CD


Given the cost of a roof over your head in this town and inflation, I'm certain some lower income folks who are working and studying to better themselves will be benefited. And then they will pay it forward. I'm never amazed at the lack of general understanding and empathy that my former conservative party manifests if someone, somewhere, is getting something that they didn't "deserve". Petty comment to a good community action. But that's all we see from you folks these days, reminds me of Ted Cruz's "put down the bong" comment on the podcast concerning student loan relief. So incredibly out of touch as to how hard it is to get by in the lower income quadrant and also work to better your life in night school.
