The Pirates’ Cove is our campus food pantry and basic needs center. It is designed to assist students facing food insecurity, provide toiletries, and connect students to additional resources in a supportive environment. Students can access nonperishable and fresh food, and work with specialists to submit CalFresh applications and housing referrals, and make an appointment to access clothing in The Closet. Pirates’ Cove is located right behind the campus bookstore and can be reached at (714) 432-6892, firstname.lastname@example.org, and https://orangecoastcollege.edu/services-support/student-equity/occ-cares/pirates-cove.html.
