Donate Food

The UTSA Student Union Food Pantry Initiative supports students to reach their full academic and personal potential, by providing access to healthy and nutritious foods. 

The Roadrunner Pantry relies on the support of our campus community for food and toiletries. Items can be dropped off at the Roadrunner Pantry Donation Station located in UTSA Student Union North (across from the Bookstore). Please keep non-perishable food items separate from non-food items.

The Roadrunner Pantry welcomes all non-perishable, non-expired donations: Amazon Shopping List
