Why: Food insecurity is a real problem within college campuses across the country. Students experiencing hunger are unable to perform well academically and some discontinue enrollment because they lack sufficient means to support themselves and pay for their education.
What: In partnership with the Coastal Bend Food Bank (formerly the Food Bank of Corpus Christi,) Izzy’s Food Pantry strives to provide food assistance for currently enrolled Texas A&M-Corpus Christi students in need. Providing TAMU-CC students with a convenient site to obtain food assistance when needed, helps ensure that students who are food insecure are able to meet their nutritional needs and minimize adverse impacts on their academic progress and success.
How: Non-perishable food items are accessible to currently enrolled TAMU-CC students one time per week at no charge. Students must fill out an application form available at Izzy’s Food Pantry during hours of operation. Pantry users will be required to present their SandDollar$ ID to verify enrollment status.
Donations: Items and monetary donations from the campus and community are gladly accepted. Non-perishable food items can be donated at University Center, 204. Financial gifts can be given through payroll deductions or via credit card. Please call to arrange either type of donation.
