Does the institution host a food bank, pantry, or equivalent resource focused on alleviating food insecurity, hunger and poverty among students?:
Yes

A brief description of the food bank, pantry, or equivalent resource:

Student Emergency Services in the Office of the Dean of Students launched UT Outpost to support students on campus. Food insecurity makes it hard for students to stay in class and succeed, and the goal is to help students understand and identify food insecurity, as well as making nutritious food readily available to students when they need it.

Along with our food pantry, our team has launched a career closet to make sure every Longhorn has access to professional clothes for job and internship interviews. Emergencies and financial hardships can interfere with student success beyond the classroom, and the program serves as an additional resource for students.
