JP's Market Food Pantry

**In response to COVID-19, JP's Market will temporarily have modified procedures to minimize the gathering of students and promote social distancing. There will be a limit of two students inside the market at at time and masks are encouraged but not required.**

JP’s Market is a free and anonymous resource to help eliminate food insecurity on our campus. It is open to all currently enrolled students at The University of Houston-Victoria, as well as Victoria College. The Market gives students access to food and hygiene products at least once a week, with no limit on how many times they can return. We offer a variety of foods to ensure students can focus on academics, and not on where they are getting their next meal. Students can also find information on various local resources, as well as government assistance programs. JP’s Market is supported by a partnership with The Food Bank of the Golden Crescent, as well as donations from UHV students, staff, faculty and community members.

JP’s Market is now open for Fall 2022 on Wednesday's and Thursday's from noon-4 PM, and on Friday's from noon-2 PM. The market is located at Jaguar Hall, Suite 1135.

If a student is unavailable during market hours or does not feel comfortable selecting items from the market, they can place an online order through the JP's Market Pick-Up Order Form of JagSync. Please contact Molly Duke at (361) 485-4457 for more information.
