Grab & Go Stations

Grab-N-Go stations are free snack stations that are primarily consisted of healthy food choices.  Students (and faculty) get busy with classwork and tight schedules.  It's not always convenient or affordable to stop for a snack.  Because of this, Grab-N-Go stations have been placed around campus to help offset hunger so that students can concentrate in class.  MCC cares about the success of our students.

Located conveniently across campus:

  • 3rd floor of the MAC building
  • 3rd floor of the LTC building
  • 2nd floor of the Student Services building
  • Enrollment Services
  • ESEC
  • Vet Clinic
  • Break room of CSC building

SNAP Applications

Did you know the federal government added special provisions for students to the SNAP application.  The government recognizes that taking time for classes can mean taking time away from work.  If you are a student with $0 Expected Family Contribution, or if  you are eligible for the work study program, then you qualify for SNAP benefits. 

Contact the CREW for assistance or information on completing or correcting SNAP applications.
