TTC Grocery Vault

The TTC Grocery Vault is a food pantry serving the Trident Tech college community. Food is available to current students, faculty and staff in need of assistance.


Students make financial sacrifices to go to school. The Grocery Vault exists to make it easier for students to complete their programs despite these financial sacrifices. The TTC Grocery Vault is located at the Palmer Campus in downtown Charleston, but there are pickup points at other campuses, as well as other delivery options for those without reliable transportation. Clients do not need to provide any financial information, and the Vault is open to all in the TTC community. 

Shop Online for Free Groceries on Fridays

Students, faculty and staff can select free items at this online order form by noon on Fridays to pick up the next Thursday.

Pickup will be held on Thursdays each week between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. at one of the designated pickup points.

Other Resources

We have now partnered with SCThrive, which will allow you to do one application to apply for additional state and federal benefits to support your educational goals. You can meet with one of our counselors on any of our campuses to fill out the application, call 800-729-8774, or apply online here.

We also offer a Clothes Closet, run by the student organization, the Clemente Coalition. You can come pick out new clothing on the Palmer Campus in Rm. 107. Contact the advisor, Dr. Mary Ann Kohli, at for the current schedule. 

In addition, the TTC Foundation Urgent Needs Fund assists students who have an unforeseen financial emergency which would otherwise prevent them from continuing to attend TTC. Contact for more information. 

Neighbors Together offers hot meals, a food bank, housing support and other help to the community.
