Mays Center for Experiential Learning and Community Engagement

The General's Store


The purpose of the General’s Store is to provide supplemental food to members of the Texas A&M University-San Antonio community who need assistance.

Jaguars can come to the General’s Store and will be asked to scan their Student ID at the check-in table set up in front of the General’s Store in Patriots’ Casa. If you are a new customer, you will be asked to complete a one-time registration/application form to the best of your ability via our PantrySoft software. Returning customers will scan their Student ID at the check-in table and proceed to the General’s Store to shop.

We receive most of our food from the San Antonio Food Bank and donations. Products offered are dependent on their availability. We try to provide as much variety as possible while sticking to our budget and providing for the basic food needs of our customers.

The General’s Store needs volunteers to stock shelves, take inventory and assist clients. Volunteers can sign up for shifts through GivePulse.

The General’s Store is located in Patriots’ Casa, RM 110
