Oak Essentials

We are a food pantry located on Salem Community College's campus. We serve both traditional and non-traditional students who may be facing either basic needs insecurity or food insecurity. We acknowledge that our students cannot be their best in the classroom if they are worried about where their next meal is coming from and our goal is to make sure that students have access to food and toiletries. The SCC food pantry currently serves individual students by providing access to non-perishable food, however we would really like to expand and provide fresh produce when possible.

Please call before you come so we can ensure someone is available to meet with you.


ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!

State Cooperative Extension Web Sites

The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
