The First Year Eats program, part of the Texas A&M Hunger Consortium, focuses on breaking down food insecurity on campus. LAUNCH presents the First Year Eats program that allows students to participate in various opportunities to receive food resources such as Crockpot meals, Monday meals, and our FYEats Store with various grocery store items. Today, many people worldwide struggle with hunger and food insecurity due to being financially unable to support their basic needs. We want to eliminate students' thoughts of "where my next meal will come from" as we seek to establish food security. This program strives to provide students in the First Year Eats program with food to narrow the gap of food insecurity.
First Year Learning Community Students are eligible for the program. They will sign up for FYEats at the beginning of each semester.
In order for us to efficiently serve students, sign-ups are required for ALL meals. A email will be sent out on a weekly basis for students opted into the program.
"I just want to thank y'all for everything you guys are doing within the First Year Eats program. The food I receive from the program, especially tonight, never disappoints and always leaves me wanting more! The beef enchilada casserole served tonight was a blessing because I've been homesick and missing San Antonio, where I'm from a lot. This casserole taste just like something my mom would make! I am also so glad to be receiving ideas for how I can cook easy, but delicious and filling means for myself in the future"
