STUDENT FOOD PANTRY
We know that this is a difficult time for those in our community experiencing food insecurity and we are identifying new ways to support them. We will be offering a food pantry pick up at the Lola & Rob Salazar Student Wellness Center tomorrow, Tuesday, March 17, from 2-5 p.m. Students will have the ability to secure twice the weekly amount of food (20 points). As campus moves to remote services, we are working to relocate our student food pantry so that we can continue to serve our students who rely on it. In the meantime, the Food Bank of the Rockies is operating at a number of locations in the metro Denver area. The list is distribution locations is changing during the current circumstances. Please use the “get help” link on www.foodbankrockies.org to find the most current locations. We will have more information soon.
