Lone Star College-Houston North helps feed community during pandemic
HOUSTON, TX - Many Houstonians continue to face food insecurity. Lone Star College-Houston North is hosting a series of food drives to help families put food and promise on the table this spring and help address this urgent need.
“Lone Star College-Houston North is committed to assisting this underserved area of Houston,” said Quentin Wright, Ed.D., LSC-Houston North president. “This effort is part of our mission to provide hope and support to our community.”
The food drives will be held in partnership with the Houston Foodbank and Aldine-Greenspoint YWCA Feb. 25, March 11, March 25, April 8, April 22, May 13, May 22, July 10 and July 24 beginning at 11 a.m. at LSC-Houston North Greenspoint.
The Houston Food Bank reports more than 1 million people in southeast Texas are food insecure, meaning they cannot afford enough nutritious food to fuel a regularly healthy lifestyle.
“Lone Star College-Houston North has already helped more than 500 families earlier this month to support them through these difficult times,” said Wright. “We feel blessed to be in a position to assist our neighbors.”
This spring, LSC-Houston North, Lone Star College’s newest college, welcomed more than 2,626 students including 100 first time in college students and 659 dual credit students. Visit LoneStar.edu/Houston North to learn how LSC can help you succeed.
