On Dec. 1, you can make a difference to students facing food insecurity with a gift to the Roadrunner Food Pantry. Your support will provide our students with an electronic gift card to supplement their monthly grocery-shopping trip while the physical food pantry remains closed. 

Another way to support students on Roadrunner Tuesday is by becoming a Social Media Ambassador. Promote #RoadrunnerTuesday on your social media accounts by sharing official content and creating posts as a call-to-action to your followers. Every ambassador will receive a free T-shirt and have a chance to win a prize pack!

Due to the pandemic, our students are experiencing an unprecedented need for food assistance. Since March, the food pantry has served over 500 students — a 43% increase over the fall 2019 semester. Without access to nutritious meals, it's difficult for Roadrunners to succeed.

Help us raise $6,000 to support food-insecure Roadrunners in 24 hours with gifts to the Roadrunner Food Pantry on #RoadrunnerTuesday. Every gift, any amount, will make a lasting impact on our students and helps ensure that no Roadrunner goes hungry. 

Roadrunners care for Roadrunners. It's what we do.
