Lone Star College-Montgomery and Communities In Schools of Houston are partnering with the Montgomery County Food Bank to host a Mobile Market to provide fresh produce and grocery items? to 200 families in need.
To access the Mobile Market, please enter the campus at West Campus Drive and follow the Mobile Market yard signs. This is a drive-thru event - for your safety, we will ask that attendees remain in their vehicles during the event. Volunteers will load grocery items into your vehicle. To ensure the safety of all volunteers and attendees, face masks will be required.
If you are interested in volunteering for this event, sign-up here.
We will be continuing with our new process for the Spring 2021 semester.
In order to be able to serve clients and keep everyone safe and healthy, food distribution from the food pantry looks a little different for the 2020-2021 academic year. Please follow the directions listed below to access food pantry resources.
Step 1: Register Online (Only Need to do this Once for the 2020-2021 Academic Year)
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.
NOTE: Because of COVID related campus access restrictions, we are currently only providing services for LSC-M community members (students, staff, faculty, etc.).
Step 2: Sign-up for Distribution
Once you have registered, you are eligible to request a bag of food every other week. Because of the COVID-19 restrictions regarding access to campus, we have developed the following process:
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.
You will also receive a request via text to the number you provided on the intake form from Remind to sign-up for text reminders. If you wish to receive text reminders, you will need to opt-in to that program via the text you receive.
Step 3: Picking up Bags
The day of your reservation, you must fill out the online Health Declaration Form located here. Make sure to fill in the correct form (there is 1 for staff and 1 for students/visitors). These forms are also available in hard copy form at the campus access point in case you forget to fill it out online before coming to campus.
NOTE: If you are a faculty/staff member and you haven't done so already, you will need to complete all of the required training for returning to campus.
You will come to the campus access point in Building B, visit the sanitizing station and the temperature screening station.
NOTE: Face masks worn properly (covering your mouth and nose) are required for you to enter the campus access point in Building B.
Our volunteers will be waiting on the other side of the barrier at the campus access point in Building B. There will be a sign visible identifying them.
You will provide the volunteer your name and they will hand you your bag.
