The Market of Virginia Tech

The Market is a new initiative of Student Affairs that is designed to provide food assistance to students who, for whatever reason, have a hard time obtaining regular, healthy meals. Such a situation could be the result of a short-term disruption in finances, residing in a food desert, or a lack of access to other financial assistance.

This fall, the Market of Virginia Tech will be set up to serve up to 75 students a week. The Market will offer bags of seasonal produce and fruits; options for beef, poultry, and vegetarian protein; dairy items; dry-goods pantry stock items; and bonus treats.

Each weekly bag will be enough for roughly seven days’ worth of meals.

“If you are an enrolled undergraduate or graduate student and wish to learn more about the Market of Virginia Tech, please submit an interest form. A member of the Office of the Dean of Students is available at themarket@vt.edu or 540-231-3787 to answer questions about food assistance..
