Does the institution host a food bank, pantry, or equivalent resource focused on alleviating food insecurity, hunger and poverty among students?:
A brief description of the food bank, pantry, or equivalent resource:
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 new and 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.
The Whataburger Resource Room opened in February 2020 in the Durango Building (DBB 1.306) to serve UTSA students on the Downtown Campus. Read more about the partnership with UTSA and Whataburger at UTSA Today
The Roadrunner Pantry is open to all students in need with a valid UTSA ID. See below for current operating hours or email RoadrunnerPantry@utsa.edu for more information.
