Food Pantry & Giving Shelves


Due to concerns of COVID-19, NCTC is postponing the Mobile Food Pantry at NCTC Corinth Campus until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience.

According to the North Texas Food Bank there is a need in North Texas to feed our community experiencing food insecurity:

  • One in every six people- including one in five children- in our service area are food insecure (about 800,000 and almost 300,000 respectively) which means they don’t always know where they will find their next nutritious meal.
  • Many North Texas neighbors must choose between putting food on the table and paying for health care or utilities.
  • Hunger exists in all zip codes and is found where you might least expect: on college campuses, in corporate offices, at child care centers and in farming communities.

NCTC is taking action to address food insecurity among its students, and is doing so with a vision of partnership and community building. We have established a Food Pantry at our main Campus in Gainesville and Giving Shelves on each of our campuses that will provide food and snacks for students in need.

Any current NCTC student in need can visit the Food Pantry and Giving Shelves.  For more information on locations, opening dates and times please contact the campuses.

Donations are accepted for the Food Pantry and Giving Shelves at any of our campus locations. Items in need include:

  • Pasta Sides
  • Fruit Snacks
  • Canned Fruit
  • Instant Rice
  • Pudding Cups
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Fruit Cups
  • Chef Boyardee
