About the Market

In Fall 2013 the San Jacinto College Food Pantry was started as a student run food assistance program that distributed non perishable food products to any enrolled SJC student in need.  Beginning in September 2019, the Food Pantry became the San Jacinto College Food Market with the support from the Houston Food Bank. The Food Market is a part of the Houston Food Bank Food for Change program. The expansion into the Food Market will allow for students to self select perishable and non perishable items weekly throughout the semester. The Food Pantry is committed to serving the student body of all San Jacinto College students.
