UTSA Dining Donates to Roadrunner Pantry
UTSA Dining helped stock the Roadrunner Pantry by generously donating 2,657 pounds of food and drink items on June 15. Boxes of donations included grab-and-go items like healthy snacks and assorted chips, as well as almond milk, coffee and tea.
A UTSA Dining spokesperson commented, “[We] take pride in providing dining experiences that nourish and support the UTSA community. Although we are saddened to have our locations closed during this unprecedented time, it is important to us that our Roadrunner community have easy access to food items. We are pleased to contribute these items to support the Roadrunner Pantry."
The Roadrunner Pantry supports student well-being by offering access to nutritious foods at the Main and Downtown Campuses. The locations remain open to serve students living on campus, and currently follow guidelines detailed on the UTSA Coronavirus Updates web page. Students can access the pantry with a valid UTSACard.
“We are so appreciative of the food donations from UTSA Dining,” said Nikki Lee, senior associate director for the Student Union and the Roadrunner Pantry. “Their support provides dining meals to our students, and their generosity continues to help our campus community.”
UTSA Dining plans to continue supporting the Roadrunner Pantry in the future. While current campus operations remain impacted by the pandemic, students are encouraged to take advantage of the pantry’s services. UTSA Dining locations will remain closed throughout the summer semester due to the pandemic, though this is subject to change as plans for the fall semester advance.
