Please help Galveston College spread the word!
Because of a change in format, the free Food for Thought drive-through food distribution is now open to all Galveston College students and the general public.
The next drive-through distribution will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, March 24, at the college’s Charlie Thomas Family Applied Technology Center, 7626 Broadway St.
Additional distribution dates are as follows:
  • Wednesday, April 7
  • Wednesday, April 21
  • Wednesday, May 5
Food for Thought is a partnership between Galveston College, the Galveston County Food Bank and the Houston Food Bank through its Food for Change food scholarship initiative.
The Food for Thought distribution gives all Galveston College students and the general public access to fresh produce, meats and other groceries on the Galveston College campus, enabling them to save money for other necessities and to maintain their focus on school.
Volunteers are needed to assist in packing/bagging food for distribution at the Charlie Thomas Family Applied Technology Center. Volunteers are asked to remain home if exhibiting any of the following symptoms:
  • cough
  • fever
  • tiredness
  • difficulty breathing
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations regarding social distancing, masks/face coverings, gloves, hand washing and sanitation will be followed.
In addition to the distributions at Galveston College, Galveston College students also can locate unrestricted Food for Change markets here or by using the Houston Food Bank mobile app. Food for Change markets are labeled to help clients identify all markets available to all Food for Change recipients.
For more information and to volunteer to assist with the program, contact Jose Martinez at jmartinez@gc.edu or (409) 944-1234.
