Feeding the Future

Recently, we surveyed students from the three existing locations and found that approximately one-third would utilize a food pantry at least twice per week if one was available on campus. Therefore, we are requesting your assistance. We have started a Feeding the Future initiative to fill food pantries at all LSC-Houston North locations.
