Germanna Food Pantries and Grab & Go Carts

Germanna has Food Pantries available at the Fredericksburg Area Campus, the Locust Grove Campus, and the Barbara J. Fried Center in Stafford.  Food can also be sent to the Daniel Technical Center and FredCat as requested.  Students can find staples, canned foods, cereal, fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables, fresh and frozen proteins, personal hygiene products, and diapers and formula when available.  In addition, Grab and Go Carts, free and available to students, include items like ramen, snacks and granola bars.  Carts are available whenever the campus is open.

SNAP Enrollment

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP provides a monthly benefit to individuals and families through an Electronic Benefits Card (EBT) to supplement the purchase of nutritious foods. Research from SCHEV estimates that nearly 25% of VCCS students would be eligible for SNAP, but only a tiny fraction of them received SNAP benefits.

Through the use of Single Stop, Germanna helps students determine eligibility for SNAP benefits.  We also have SNAP 50/50 support specialists who can help you with your SNAP application. Email for more information.
