Our goal is to eliminate hunger at Texas A&M, bring awareness to food insecurity in college communities, and show others the power of the Aggie spirit. The 12th Can is affiliated with Brazos Valley Food Bank as a program partner, and we reside under the Student Government Association.
We are always looking for more members to help us fulfill our mission. If you are interested in hearing more about joining The 12th Can, go to our Membership Tab. For more information, please contact our Membership Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
What We Do
The 12th Can is a 501(c)(3) non-profit student organization dedicated to eliminating food insecurity at Texas A&M University.
Our students operate an on-campus food pantry from start to finish. From food orders to product donations to food drives to pantry openings, we do it all. Our members are diverse, coming from a variety of backgrounds, but we are unified in the spirit of service.
The pantry process is based on a client choice model, where we replicate a shopping experience for our clients. We feel that food insecurity is a humbling problem, and we want to serve our recipients with the highest level of comfort possible.
Hear From Our Alumni
"The 12th Can has molded me into the best version of myself I could have imagined. I would not be the person or leader I am today without the tools and experience I have gained while volunteering at and leading The 12th Can. I have grown so much at Texas A&M, but most of my growth has been due to my time spent with The 12th Can. By joining The 12th Can, you are able to serve your fellow Aggies selflessly with some fun and interesting people from all walks of life."
