Food for Thought

Food for Thought moving to main campus

The Food for Thought food scholarship program for Galveston College students will relocate to the main campus in an open-air market format, beginning with the Nov. 23 distribution date.

In order to plan accordingly, the Nov. 10 market has been canceled. Currently enrolled students can obtain Food for Thought client ID cards in the Galveston College Counseling and Advising Center on the first floor of Moody Hall on the main campus or at the office at the Applied Technology Center.

The Food for Thought market will be located in the Hermes Fitness Center parking area on 39th Street and will be open from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 23. The market will again be open on Wednesday, Dec. 8 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.

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.

Food for Thought gives all Galveston College students 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.

The program is operating on the regular scholarship program schedule this semester and is not be available to the general public. For a calendar listing of mobile food pantries in Galveston County open to the public, click here.
