Volunteers passing out produce

CARE partners with the North Texas Food Bank to help address food insecurity issues by bringing the mobile food truck to the Denton campus in the fall and spring semesters. The mobile food truck is open for students, faculty, staff and community members. NTFB follows the USDA’s guidelines for eligibility but will not turn an individual away who is in need. Please plan on parking in the Jones Hall East Parking Lot. Coolers and ice packs will help produce stay fresh while you are in class. You are encouraged to bring your own bags, but NTFB will have some plastic grocery sacks if you cannot bring your own.

NOTE: Truck offers produce only

All dates take place in Jones East Parking Lot (location may change due to weather, please check Facebook @twuoffcampus for updates.)

Helpful hints

  • If you have some sturdy bags, bring them. 
  • Park in the Jones Hall parking lot.
  • If you are going to class or to work before heading home, consider bringing a cooler and ice packs to keep produce fresh. 
  • Make a plan about how you will get produce back to your residence halls if you live on campus.

The truck arrives on campus around 10:45 a.m.-11 a.m. and distribution is from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. We need about 15 volunteers per shift.
