Whataburger Resource Room | Roadrunner Pantry

The mission of the UTSA Student Union is to support the educational mission of the University of Texas at San Antonio by maintaining facilities, providing services, and promoting programs that will enrich the quality of student life.

The Roadrunner Pantry began as an idea between students, faculty, and staff at UTSA. The UTSA Student Union, realizing the true need to provide the basic necessity of nutritious food to students struggling with food access and insecurity, and through rigorous research of current higher education practices, established the Roadrunner Pantry.

Opening in March 2017, this important initiative supports the mission of serving our students to help them in reaching academic excellence during their time of need. The UTSA Student Union Food Pantry helps students reach their full academic and personal potential, by providing access to healthy and nutritious foods.
