Never, ever go hungry

Food Pantry

No student or campus employee at Lamar State College Port Arthur should ever go hungry.

Food insecurity is a problem that some LSCPA students and employees have to deal with from time to time.

To help prevent this issue, we've teamed up with our partners across campus to create The Seahawk Food Pantry, a free and anonymous food pantry especially for LSCPA students, faculty, and staff.


The mission of the The Seahawk Food Pantry is to help Lamar State College Port Arthur students succeed in their pursuit of higher education and to support those who help provide this education by providing access to free, nutritious food and additional resources.


All current LSCPA students and employees are eligible to participate. Those in need of donations must have a valid LSCPA ID.


The Seahawk Food Pantry is open for distribution during the following days and hours:

Monday 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Tuesday 9:00 to 3:00 p.m.
Wednesday 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Thursday 9:00 to 3:00 p.m.
Friday 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.



or stop by the Business Office
on the campus of LSCPA to
make a donation in person.
We accept cash, check or credit cards.
