General Information

No student should go hungry, There is a perception that if a student can afford to go to college, they can also afford food. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Dusty's Food Pantry was created on October 2017 to tackle the problem of food insecurity happening in our campus and across the nation.


By providing basic needs, TAMIU students can continue to focus on their academic success without facing the burden of food insecurity.

Hunger-free students achieving success.
