Student Health Services
Welcome to Foothill's Student Health Services
Our mission is to strengthen student learning, retention and success. This is facilitated by supporting the physical, emotional, and well-being of students through accessible, high-quality, health activities and services. Our primary goal is to assist students in establishing healthy lifestyles which will have long-term benefits for them, their families and the community.
Foothill is fortunate to have opened a Food Pantry last fall thanks to partners Second Harvest Food Bank and the Community Services Agency. The Food Pantry provides groceries to any Foothill student enrolled in credit or non-credit classes who meets the self-reported income eligibility set by Second Harvest. But for students who don’t have a home where they can bring groceries and make meals, the Food Pantry is not a viable option. - See more at: https://foundation.fhda.edu/stories/FH_food_pantry.html#.WTH2qcm1t
The Gavilan College food pantry is a collaboration between Gavilan College CalWORKs, Fresh Success, Association Students of Gavilan College (ASGC), Second Harvest Food Bank and St. Joseph’s Family Center. The pantry is open all year long and serves the entire Gavilan College Community.
The Student Health Center at Foothill College remains open for virtual services. Students that need in-clinic services, will be referred to the Instant Urgent Care clinic in Sunnyvale after a Telemedicine evaluation.
