How does the TTU Food Pantry work?

Students who need food are encouraged to visit the pantry to receive nonperishable food items.  You will be provided with a reusable grocery bag to fill with items you need.  The bag also contains a can opener and information sheets with additional community resources, recipes, and/or information about healthy eating.  We ask students to return the bag after use in order for other students to reuse the bags.
