Food Pantries

Hungry or concerned about being able to put food on the table?

Dallas College's food pantries are here to help. You can find them located on our seven main campuses. Supplies range from snacks and meals to diapers. Everything is free to students in need.

 

Pantry Hours and Locations

 

Community members can also access the Mobile Food Pantry each month as the North Texas Food Bank truck stops by each campus. View upcoming Mobile Food Pantry dates and times.

If you have questions about food assistance, please call 972-669-6400 and ask for the Basic Needs and Community Connections, or email connections@dcccd.edu.

Our student care coordinators will refer you to the resources that best meet your needs.

 

Each month, Dallas College offers a SNAP Workshop where anyone can learn about and apply for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). SNAP is a federal program that helps people buy food they need for better health.

According to the North Texas Food Bank, one in six North Texans don't know where they will find their next meal.

That means it is more difficult for our students, colleagues and community members to put food on the table – even though our food costs are cheaper than the national average.

Nearly half of the Dallas College student population is food insecure. In the past 30 days, these students have eaten less at meals to make their food last longer or have skipped meals entirely. Many do not know where their next meal will originate. Yet, these students return to class, complete assignments and fight to earn their education, as they sacrifice so much to be here.

The struggle regarding food insecurity is real. But we can do something to help.
