Mission

Raider Red's Food Pantry will provide students with short-term access to supplemental food. We will also connect students with resources on and off campus in an effort to support student wellbeing.

Raider Red's Food Pantry Guidelines:

  • Students must be currently enrolled at TTU and present their student ID at the time of visit.
  • After three (3) visits in one semester, the student will be encouraged to meet with an Office of the Dean of Students representative prior to future visits.
  • Students will have access to Raider Red's Food Pantry in person during posted hours.
  • Students needing access to food will work with the Office of the Dean of Students.

How does Raider Red's 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 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.  No proof of income is necessary to visit the food pantry.
