  • SCC Share and Care Center - Our students are the heart of what we do. The last thing we want our students to worry about is food insecurity. So that is why we have created The Share & Care center on both the Somerset and Laurel campuses. The Share and Care center is a free food pantry for students with food insecurity. Students can access the center with a current SCC ID. It is completely free and its visitors are kept anonymous. The motto of the center is “take if you need, give if you can”.
