Summer 2024 Hours of Operation
Wednesday: 3 PM - 5 PM

The Mustangs Pantry is an emergency aid program at MSU Texas designed to improve lives and help supplement the needs of students experiencing food insecurity. The Mustangs Mini-Pantry is also available 24/7 located in the Legacy Hall Commons.

The Mustangs Pantry is a free service open to all currently enrolled students at MSU Texas who are not on a residential meal plan (Platinum, Gold, or Silver). The Mustangs Pantry is located in the Bridwell Activities Center and is open every Wednesday and Thursday from 5-7 PM while classes are in session.

If a student experiencing food insecurity is unable to visit the Pantry due to a conflict with their class schedule, an appointment can be arranged by visiting the Clark Student Center Office. A valid MSU ID is necessary to access the Mustangs Pantry.

Students visiting the Mustangs Pantry can expect a simple, open-handed, and non-judgmental environment in which they can receive items from a variety of non-perishable goods such as canned soups, meats, pasta, vegetables, fruits, and cereals as well as boxed and refrigerated selections. Personal hygiene products and limited school supplies are also available.

Located in the Legacy Hall Commons, the Mustangs Mini-Pantry provides essential canned goods for a fast and easy meal option. Open 24/7, the Mini-Pantry operates through a 'Take What You Need, Leave What You Can' model so students can not only receive the help they need, when they need it, but also support one another as members of a caring educational community.

The Mustangs Pantry is made possible thanks to the generosity of the MSU Texas and Wichita Falls community. The donation of food items, personal hygiene products, and tax-deductible financial contributions sustain the program. Any food items received which are not utilized by the Mustangs Pantry is donated to local non-profit organizations such as the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank or Faith Mission.
