The General's Store

Welcome to the General’s Store– our campus food pantry!

COVID-19 UPDATE: To ensure the safety of our community, we have moved our services to curbside pick-up starting Wednesday, March 25. If you are interested in scheduling a pick-up, please complete this form.  We’ll make every effort to pack your shopping bags with care and do our best of provide a substitute if we run out of a product. Please pull your car, or walk up to the front of the Patriot’s Casa during the pick-up time you select.

 

If you are interested in donating funds to the General's Store, please click here. 

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.

Every time you come to the General’s Store you will be asked to check-in at the front desk in the Patriots’ Casa. You will be asked to complete the First-Time Application Form to the best of your ability. At check-in, you will be given a Shopping List.

You will get a new Shopping List to fill-out at every visit. This helps us in three ways:

  • It acts as a check-in card so that we know you were here.
  • Checking the items you have selected assists our inventory process.
  • Your feedback lets us know how to serve you better.

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

Please only take the kinds of food you will actually use so that we have plenty for everyone. Food categories are labeled inside the General’s Store with weekly limits.

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

Wednesdays: 2 - 6 pm
or by appointment (call the Mays Center in advance)

If you would like to make an appointment, have any questions or would like to volunteer, please email us at foodpantry@tamusa.edu or visit the General’s Store during operation hours and speak to one of our team members in person.
