Food Distribution for Students at West Bank Campus on June 4

June 04, 2020

Today, June 4, from noon to 3 p.m., Delgado Community College West Bank Campus faculty distributed free food, protective face masks, and other items to about 80 students.

Students in their vehicles entered the drive in front of Larocca Hall from General Meyer Ave. to obtain their packages. Delgado faculty observing social distancing handled the distribution.

The WISE (Women in Search of Excellence) Women’s Center at the Delgado West Bank Campus maintains a food pantry year-round for needy students. Because of the COVID-19 stay-at-home orders and closure of the campus in March, the center organized this distribution event to be certain students who need food and protective items can obtain it.

Participating in the event were Dr. Peter Cho, executive dean, West Bank Campus; Candace Clanton, professor of speech communication and Faculty Senate member; and Laila Bicksler, professor of mathematics and co-director of the WISE Center. Campus Police made certain all safety protocols were followed.
