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
We also welcome baby food, pet food, can openers, toilet paper, tissues, paper towels, diapers, tooth paste, shampoo, and soaps.
In partnership with UTSA Dining, powered by Aramark Higher Education, the Roadrunner Pantry we will begin the campaign to Swipe Out Hunger. The Swipe Drive enables students with extra meal swipes or dining dollars to donate up to 2 meals to their peers, per academic year. UTSA Dining will generously match all swipes during The Swipe Drive. Drives are scheduled for February 2021 and will benefit the Meal Share Program.
The Roadrunner Pantry accepts monetary donations to ensure food is always available. Our partnership with the San Antonio Food Bank helps us use these funds to purchase food for stocking the pantry for students in need.
Make a gift through UTSA Payroll Deduction by downloading the form and denote Food Pantry.
Consider donating your UTSA graduation gown to the Grad Gown Giving Project. We accept the UTSA navy blue undergraduate and graduate gowns.

Donations may be dropped off at the Whataburger Resource Room on the Main and DT campuses during operating hours. Or you can coordinate a drop-off time by email at RoadrunnerPantry@utsa.edu.
Sign up your event to include a food drive to benefit the Roadrunner Pantry! We will drop off the donation bins before your event and pick them up after it.
