When Lone Star College student Dwyanya Earnhardt first heard about a food pantry(食品室)opening at her college in September 2015, she was embarrassed to ask for help, but knew she needed it. she’s used the food pantry several times since.

Lone Star Montgomery Campus is among a growing number of US colleges opening food pantries for students. In the Houston area alone, San Jacinto College and the University of Houston Downtown(UHD) have also added them. UHD opened its food pantry in spring 2015. it’s hoping to increase its use among students through a program being launched this term. About 100 to 150 students will be awarded food scholarships to use in a new food bank constructed inside the student services building.

“More students of different backgrounds have access to higher education, but that you got in doesn’t mean you have the support coming from home to keep you in,” said Patrick Jefferson, UHD”s assistant vice president for student affairs.

“Many of the students come after work, take their class, then they go home, and they don’t leave their challenges at the front door,” said Jefferson. “We’re recognizing that we just can’t ay. ‘We only worry about our students’ academic challenges.’ We have to think about the student as a whole person.”

The majority of donations to Lone Star’s food pantry have come from teachers and students. The food pantry is open from noon until 3 p. m. on Tuesdays and Fridays, but students can request it at another time if needed. Nearly 590 students have used the pantry since it opened last fall.

San Jacinto College has been offering food pantry services twice a month to students since 2013. The college sends a bag of items on certain days and has received more than 1,000 student requests since it began. It allows students from all income levels to request food. UHD and Lone Star Montgomery Campus also follow the same policy.
