AACC's campus pantry is created in partnership with the Maryland Food Bank and provides food to individuals and families in our community.
We are currently offering AACC food pantry services remotely, through delivery of nonperishable, shelf-stable items. Students, faculty and staff experiencing food insecurity may request a one-time or weekly deliveries. Inquiries and sign-up requests may be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Delivery boxes will include nutritious staples such as pasta, peanut butter, canned tuna, canned vegetables and other items. We're working to ensure we have an adequate supply of emergency food available to meet an anticipated uptick in demand. If you have a dietary restriction, be sure to indicate that in your request.
If you have additional questions about food pantry services, email email@example.com.
Note: We will provide direct shipment to the AACC student, faculty or staff member. We are unable to ship food to your family or friends.
AACC understands that unforeseen financial emergencies occur from time to time, and has established an emergency fund to help meet the immediate needs of students in crisis.

HelpLink grants provide temporary, short-term financial help to students for critical expenses including:
Please note that there are some limits to the ways in which purchases can be made. Each applicant will work one on one with a member of the HelpLink team to ensure that they understand what they are eligible for and how the aid can be awarded.
