Food Pantry

Eastfield College Food Pantry

The Eastfield College Food and Resource Pantry mission is to help eliminate food insecurities and hunger within the Eastfield Community by providing students, faculty, staff, and community members with non-perishable food and personal care items while respecting and maintaining the dignity of each individual we serve.

The Pantry is operated by the College’s Center for Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity and provides through a partnership with North Texas Food Bank, donations, and volunteer efforts.
