The College of Education has teamed up with Bobcat Bounty to help fight food insecurities across campus by opening two new free food cupboards for the Bobcat Community.

Bobcat Bounty is the first student-run, the on-campus food pantry at Texas State University. It is run by students under the direction of faculty from the Food Security Learning Community in the Nutrition & Foods Program.

Previously, only one food cupboard was available to students on the west side of campus in the Family and Consumer Science Building. Now, with the help of the College of Education, two new locations will be available for students.

There is now a cupboard in Jowers Center located in the first-floor student lounge. There is also a cupboard on the third floor of the Education Building near the elevators. These cupboards are open to all students, faculty, staff, and the Bobcat community. Individuals can select the foods they need without charge and at their convenience.

This expansion is an effort to provide easier access to individuals that may be facing food insecurities. Readily available resources like this help improve the college experience, especially for students. These cupboards will be replenished weekly, allowing for fresh food to be put on the shelves.
