Free eGift Cards to Buy Food

To support our students and families during the pandemic, Mission College has launched a Food Assistance program. More resources available to the students during the pandemic are listed at missioncares.missioncollege.edu.

Request Assistance Form

The Food Assistance team coordinates bi- weekly distributions of FREE eGift cards to Walmart.

To be eligible, Mission students must be enrolled in at least three units during the Summer 2021 semester and complete the Food Request Form each week by the given deadline. 

Students who qualify will receive:

  • $60.00 Walmart eGift cards

*Due to the limited amount of funding, distribution will be on a first come, first serve basis. Distribution dates are subject to change based on the needs of the program.*

In addition, Mission College has partnered with Second Harvest Food Bank of Silicon Valley to host a drive-thru food distribution every Tuesday from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. in parking lot A.
