RCTC Student Beehive – April 15, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 changes, the Beehive is one tool that will be used to relay important information to you as it becomes available. It’s likely that it will no longer be a Wednesday publication but rather we will send it out as is necessary to keep you updated. Please be sure to take advantage of The Hive (this blog). It has loads of information in addition to the Beehive!

Check out the following links for important resources that are available to you:

The Hive Supply, our campus-based food pantry, is still open for student use during this time. To comply with current recommendations for the CDC related to social distancing we have created pre-packed brown paper bags with items from the Hive Supply as a grab and go option. Students are able to pick up a bag of food items on campus in the Atrium during business hours (8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday).

New Delivery Service
The Hive Supply will now be making deliveries of food items to students in need who are not able to visit campus. Deliveries will be made on Fridays from 12:00-4:00 p.m. and dropped off at the door or entrance to an apartment complex. Students will be notified when their delivery is dropped off. We are currently making deliveries within the Rochester city limits. If you do not live in Rochester please e-mail Travis Rutt at travis.rutt@rctc.edu for assistance with a delivery. You can request a Hive Supply delivery here please make your request by 4:30 p.m. on Thursday.
