All BC students who are currently enrolled or who have been enrolled in the past year are eligible for food from Gator Mart. The Gator Mart drive-thru food distribution is on Wednesdays from 4 – 6 p.m.

  • Students should bring their student ID card and Houston Food Bank card (if available).
  • Distribution will take place in the overhang area of the Sadler Health Sciences Building.
  • To protect the safety of all food recipients and staff, the following guidelines set forth by the CDC and the Houston Food Bank will be followed:
    • Drive under the Sadler Health Sciences Building overhang and stop next to a table placed in that area.
    • Pre-packed boxes and bags of groceries will be on the table.
    • Exit your car, open your trunk, and load the groceries into your trunk. Be careful not to touch the table; just touch the boxes and bags of groceries. If you accidentally touch the table, alert one of the staff and they will clean the table after you leave.
    • All staff and food recipients will maintain a six-foot distance at all times.
