Lobo Food Pantry Has Served Hundreds of Students and Families

Early promo, LoboRESPECT Advocacy is now a sponsor
The cost of higher education and related expenses (on top of daily expenditures like utilities, transportation, rent, etc...) often limits the ability of students and their families from acquiring nutritious food. This includes fruits, vegetables and other essential foodstuffs necessary to keep those brain cells operating properly.

Enter the Lobo Food Pantry, organized and sponsored by LoboRESPECT Advocacy Center, the University of New Mexico Dean of Students Office, the UNM Office of  Student Affairs, and Roadrunner Food Bank. In the first six months of the program, the food pantry has served over 800 students and families by providing them with free groceries.

The next Lobo Food Pantry distribution is scheduled for 
Friday, February 17, 2017
UNM South Parking Lot on the southwest corner of Avenida Cesar Chavez and Buena Vista.
