UST and Houston Food Bank Continue Efforts to End Local Food Scarcity

The University of St. Thomas and Houston Food Bank will partner this Friday, Sept. 17 from 4 – 6 p.m. to help feed students and other Houstonians who don’t have enough to eat.

The  mobile food distribution is a contactless, ‘drive-through’ service open to both the UST community and greater Houston area, according to an email sent from the University Events Department at UST.

 “Those participating will not have to leave their car. Participants are asked to fill a short survey through their phones and all volunteers follow safety precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Food will be deposited into the trunk of the vehicle with no direct contact,” the email stated.

Organizers have also asked that anyone experiencing Covid-19 symptoms arrange for someone else to pick up their food.

This is not the first time UST has partnered with the Food Bank to host a campus food drive, and future distributions  are already scheduled for Oct. 1 and 15, Nov. 5, 19 and 24, and Dec. 3. All  of these dates fall on Fridays, except for Wednesday, Nov. 24 (the day before Thanksgiving).

Current students can also stop by the Celt Pantry, located in the Veterans Affairs office, anytime if they need food.
