Honeycomb Cupboard: Eastfield's Food Pantry

The Eastfield College food and resource pantry's 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, called the Honeycomb Cupboard, 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.
