Summer 2021 & COVID-19

UPDATE: Due to changes to the campus COVID procedures, the location of bag pick-up will now be at the Food Pantry, located in the lobby of Building E. We will continue to have folks register online & sign-up for appointment time slots for the safety of our volunteers.

The summer schedule for the Food Pantry bag pick-up begins the week of May 17th, 2021 and runs through August, 26th, 2021.

For the summer, bag pick-up will be done at the Food Pantry (see map).

 

Step 1: Register Online (Only Need to do this Once for the 2020-2021 Academic Year)

Fill out the LSC-M Food Pantry Intake Form Here.

Before you recieve your first bag of the year, you must register online. This form is only filled out once each academic year (August - July) and the information is only used to verify your connection with LSC-M, prepare your food bag and to report demographic information to the Montgomery County Food Bank, since we are a partner organization with the MCFB.

Please only fill out 1 form per household, indicating all individuals who reside within the household on this form.

Step 2: Sign-up for Distribution

Once you have registered, you are eligible to request a bag of food every other week by signing up for an appointment to pick-up your bag. Sign-up for an appointment here. You will only be given your bag of food during your reserved time-slot to help enforce social distancing rules for the campus. If you are unable to make any of the available time slots, e-mail us at MC-FoodPantry@lonestar.edu.

The deadline to sign-up for an appointment for a given week is Monday at 10am. You will receive a reminder e-mail on Tuesday the week of your appointment. It will include the names & emails of the volunteers working that week. Please contact them if you are running late or unable to make your appointment.

Step 3: Picking up Bags

As stated above, bags will be distributed from the Food Pantry, located in the Building E Lobby.
