WE’RE HERE TO HELP

PEEPS Pantry provides free food, toiletries and supplies to University of Houston students in financial need. We know students can struggle academically when they’re worried about their next meal or bill. That’s why we’re here to help. The pantry, housed in the UH College of Education, is open to all currently enrolled UH students in any college and is supported by donations and volunteers. Learn more below about visiting the pantry, donating and volunteering.

ABOUT THE PANTRY

PEEPS Pantry opened in response to a great need – roughly 20% of college students nationwide identify as food insecure, uncertain how they will afford their next meal. Laura Lee, the student success coordinator at the UH College of Education, launched the pantry as part of the College’s multipronged PEEPS program. PEEPS stands for Personal Early Educational Support, and the overall program is designed to assist students with their academics as well as their social and emotional well-being. The pantry is now open to all UH students facing food insecurity.
