Fall 2020 & COVID-19

In order to be able to serve clients and keep everyone safe and healthy, food distribution from the food pantry will look a little different this semester. Please follow the directions listed below to access food pantry resources.

Step 1: Register Online

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.

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:

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.

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.
