The 12th Can Food Pantry

Posted October 03, 2017


The 12th Can is an on-campus, student-run food pantry that serves all students, faculty and staff of Texas A&M in need of assistance. Since we opened our doors in November 2013, we have served over 2,500 Aggies with over 75,000 pounds of food!

Pantry Openings: We are open every first & third Wednesday & Thursday of the month from 10am - 4:30pm.

Our pantry openings for October will be -

  • Wednesday, October 4th
  • Thursday, October 5th
  • Wednesday, October 18th
  • Thursday, October 19th

How the pantry works: The 12th Can is a client choice food pantry, meaning that upon a client’s arrival, they are given a bag to fill with whatever food they see fit for themselves.

Requirements to use the pantry:

  • Meet income requirements (found on the "Using the Pantry" tab on our website,
  • Present a valid Texas A&M ID

Both new and returning clients will have to fill out short, informational intake forms available upon arrival to the pantry, then will be granted access to our pantry's contents.

Location of The 12th Can Food Pantry: 330 Agronomy Road, College Station, TX (inside the Mail Services Building, Suite #119). If you take Bus Route 6 (12th Man), you will get off at the Vet School stop. The Mail Services Building is approximately 100 feet from the bus stop.
