JP’s Market Food Pantry
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 2023 on Wednesdays & Thursdays from Noon-3 P.M. 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 on JagSync. Please contact Hilary Kofron at (361) 485-4409, for more information.

Located behind Jaguar Hall, the Community Garden is approximately 700 square feet of university land devoted to growing produce and educating campus and community members about healthy living. This recreational and educational project provides students the opportunity to learn about sustainability, gardening, and food production. The produce grown from the Community Garden is taken to JP’s Market to make sure our students are getting healthy, affordable nourishment each week.
