Carroll Food Locker

  • The Carroll Food Locker Program (CFLP) offers grocery assistance to Carroll Community College faculty, staff and students in need. The program is made possible from Student Life sponsored food drives of non-perishable food donations from faculty, staff and students.

  • Eligibility

    All students, credit and non-credit, who are registered for the current semester and current faculty and staff are able to participate. No financial information is required to determine eligibility.

    Application Process

    To sign up for the Food Locker, please email

    You will need to complete an information/waiver form. This simple one-page form requires your college ID number, and some basic demographic information. No name or financial information is asked. However, a signature is required for the waiver.

    Once you have been determined eligible, you will receive a Food Locker ID number and card, which you must present at food pick-up.

    The registration process is repeated at the start of every new term.

    Food Pick-up

    Food items vary week to week but primarily consist of canned foods, pasta, peanut butter, condiments, cereal, crackers, pretzels and similar items. There is quite a variety of food represented in limited quantities such as organic and ethnic foods.
