Food donations

Donations from the public help us to provide the most balanced diet possible for the Tarleton community. We have a variety of kitchen options for our students, ranging from microwave and fridge only to full kitchens (shared or individual). Our Purple Pantry @ Stephenville can support refrigerated and frozen items, but we ask you contact us first as space is limited. Our other sites support shelf-stable donations only.

Donations may be dropped off in the Thompson Student Center Texan Card Office (212) or directly with the Purple Pantry @ Stephenville or Purple Pantry @ Fort Worth.

Planning a donation drive? Please contact us for a brief meeting to learn more about our current needs before you get started. (link to or call us at 254-968-9081)
