UHD Food for Change Market Now Open

The UHD Food for Change Market at the University of Houston-Downtown has reopened for the fall 2020 semester. The market is open 10 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment only. 

The program is designed to provide students access to shop for fresh produce, meats and other groceries on campus, enabling students to save money for other necessities and stay focused on school.

How does the UHD Food for Change Market work?

  • The program allows students to shop in the UHD Food for Change Market for up to 30 pounds of goods each week.
  • No payment is required when shopping in the market, as the initiative’s goal is to reduce stress on students managing personal responsibilities and academic progress.
  • Students may shop for groceries before, in between, or after class to help supplement any food needs.

What do students need to know?

  • Students will need to complete the Houston Food Bank's Registration Form to be eligible. Students who have previously submitted an application do not need to apply again.
  • Once the Registration Form is submitted, students will be able to shop in the UHD Food for Change Market for up to 30 pounds each week (based on availability). 
  • Students must be currently enrolled at UHD to meet eligibility requirements for the program.

Registration forms are available online, and students may schedule appointments online.
