The Gator Mart has moved to a drive-thru distribution, during COVID-19.  All BC students, who are currently enrolled or who have been enrolled in the past year, are eligible for food from the Gator Mart.  The mobile distributions occur bi-weekly on Wednesday afternoons, from 4:00-6:00PM and on Thursday afternoons from 1:00 - 3:00 PM.  Students can choose one day, each distribution week, to drive thru and receive groceries.  The following are the distribution dates for the 2021 Spring semester:

We ask the student to:
  • Please bring your student ID card or number and Houston Food Bank card (if available).
  • Distribution will take place in the overhang area of the Sadler Health Sciences Building.
  • To protect the safety of all food recipients and staff, the following guidelines set forth by the CDC and the Houston Food Bank will be followed:
    • Drive under the Sadler Health Sciences Building overhang and stop next to a table placed in that area.
    • Pre-packaged boxes and bags of groceries will be on the table.
    • Exit your car, open your trunk, and load the groceries into your trunk. Be careful not to touch the table; just touch the boxes and bags of groceries. If you accidentally touch the table, alert one of the staff and they will clean the table after you leave.
    • All staff and food recipients will maintain a six-foot distance at all times.
