Student Needs Center

The Learning Resource Centers in Canton and Macomb offer non-perishable food items, household and hygiene products, and various school supplies. All SRC students (including online or those visiting the Rushville or Havana sites) can request items from the Student Needs Center (at no cost to the student) by completing the Support Request Form. Items cannot be shipped directly to the student, but can be picked up at a specified campus location.


In an effort to assist students who are experiencing homelessness and in accordance with IL Public Act 102-0083, Spoon River College has designated a liaison to assist enrolled SRC homeless students.

If you are at risk or are experiencing homelessness, contact the Spoon River College Homeless Liaison:
