Food insecurity is a growing concern for college students nationwide, and Howard Payne wants to help ensure that current HPU students have basic needs met.

We appreciate the support given by various individuals and groups who have helped make the pantry a reality, including the Baptist Student Ministry, HPU faculty and staff, local churches, Sodexo, Student Activities, and the Office of Student Experience.

Jacket Food & Essentials utilization is for currently enrolled HPU students. Students must bring their HPU Student ID Cards to utilize the pantry.
In addition to being a currently enrolled student, the following policies will guide pantry utilization:
- Food items are assigned point values, and the following point value system will be used to determine how many items can be obtained per visit, with extra consideration given in point values for students with dependent family members:
|Student only||Student +1 dependent||Student +2||Student +3||Student +4 or more|
- Students will be allowed to fill a bag with items up to their number of points.
- These points are per visit only and do not roll over to subsequent visits. See chart above.
- The volunteer attendant will verify the items selected by the student and note the types of items selected in an effort to keep the pantry stocked with necessary items.

Students should always verify this information before beginning college and also determine how long they will be eligible for coverage under their parents’ plan.
