Community Market flyerIn March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic forced our district and our community to shelter in place.  Unfortunately, his unprecedented situation forced the Skyline College Free Community Market and SparkPoint Food Pantry to close in order to protect the health and safety of our students, community and employees.  In April, the San Mateo County Community College District was able to partner with Second Harvest Food Bank of Silicon Valley to launch the SMCCCD Emergency Grocery Distribution located at College of San Mateo every Friday.  After consistent growth and success at the CSM location, we are proud to announce Skyline College will be launching its own grocery distribution event to provide food resources to our students and local community.

The Skyline College Drive-Thru Community Market will launch on Wednesday, September 2nd. This weekly event will be held at Skyline College every Wednesday, 11:00am-1:00pm.  SparkPoint, public safety, and facilities staff will work along side volunteers from Skyline College, SMCCCD and our local community to distribute pre-boxed groceries while adhering to all COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols.

  • Only drive-thru pickups will be served
  • Open to students and the community
  • No I.D required to pick up food
  • Please call 650-738-7970 for weather and air quality closure updates
  • Please use Skyline Blvd entrance
