Tarleton State University is famous for leading by example, and their highly successful food pantry is a perfect reason why.
Just barely a year old, Tarleton’s on-campus food pantry is fast becoming a model for other Texas universities. Thanks to the collaboration of the university’s Student Life and Academic Affairs divisions, the pantry served almost 160 clients during the 2015-16 academic year, helping students stay enrolled and enjoy academic success without worrying about their next meal or whether to pay for one necessity or another.
Now, other universities—like Prairie View A&M—want to know how to set up and maintain their own pantries for students facing food insecurity. Prairie View officials toured the Tarleton facility this summer. They now have a good idea of how to create their own campus service.
