Organization Details
Prior to the pandemic, roughly 60% of U.S. college students faced food insecurity. Now, due COVID-19, UNT, TWU, and NCTC have closed their campus food pantries, even while many self-supporting students reside on these food-desert campuses. In response to this crisis, the Denton Wesley Foundation has opened its food pantry weekly to provide free groceries for pick-up or delivery to over 130 students and their dependents, with the number of new households growing by 300% in one week. Our Wesley student members run the pantry and have elected to increase food-pantry spending by over 800%, sacrificing their own program funds to meet this need.
