Students,

If you all are submitting orders PLEASE make sure to come by and pick up your orders on the day you select when you place your order. We have several orders that were bagged that were supposed to be picked up on Friday, but students didn’t come by.

If you submit an order & things change throughout the week & you can’t come by the office to pick up your groceries, PLEASE call the office so that we can cancel your order.

Once again, only place orders if you know for sure you will be able to come pick it up.

Thank you.

🍗 Happy Thursday everyone! Just wanted to remind you all to stop by the pantry this week to check out our "clothing" drive that is in place. Recently, students here at UTRGV took it upon themselves to donate clothes that they just didn't want anymore. Feel free to stop by and see what interests you! 🍗

🍗 Happy Wednesday! Remember to stop by the Pantry this week to start the semester off right, and make sure to spread the word to help as many students as we can.🍗

01/13/2020

🍗Did you know that, according to a 2017 study of around 30,000 college students, half of two-year and four-year students are food insecure? Even if you may not be able to experience it first-hand, there's no doubt that student hunger at universities is a HUGE problem that must be addressed.

Please make sure to let anyone you may know who is dealing with food scarcity about the pantry here on campus!🍗
