Food and Resource Center

Inver Hills Community College is committed to providing excellent educational opportunities to the communities it serves. We recognize basic needs - including things like food, housing and transportation - can have a direct impact on the well-being and success of our students. If you need additional resources for perishable food, food banks, or other community resources, please check out our Basic Needs website for more resources.

You don't need to navigate this alone. IHCC Counselors are available to meet with students who need assistance with mental health or basic needs issues.
