UT Outpost is a food pantry and career closet open to all enrolled students. The food pantry is an on-campus free food resource to reduce food insecurity and hunger among students. The career closet offers free professional clothes for internships, interviews and professional environments. The outfits, shoes and accessories chosen by students are theirs to keep, and all professional clothing donations are carefully inspected before being offered to students.
Starting Fall of 2019, Microfarm has partnered with UT Outpost to donate all produce grown at the farm to support students. So far, we have donated 277 lbs. of produce to increase the availability of fresh, healthy food available through UT Outpost.

On our instagram, we have a UT Outpost story that shows you how to get to their location. If you are interested in learning more about food insecurity and food deserts/apartheid, check out our Food Justice Hub.
