SAN ANTONIO - Since 2017 the Roadrunner Food Pantry at University of Texas at San Antonio has helped thousands of students on campus, and now in its second year they're looking to expand.

  • UTSA food pantry looking to expand
  • Has served thousands of students
  • Could come to downtown campus

The university says roughly 7,500 students have picked up food from the pantry in the last two years. They've received 35,000 pounds of food and distributed almost 33,000.

The school is working to host more awareness events about the pantry along with bringing in a refrigerator in which to store fresh produce.

They're also trying to expand the pantry to the downtown campus in the future.

"Many students don't have jobs or are struggling to make ends meet and this is a great resource for a lot of students to come to us," said graduate assistant Larry Savoy.

Current students can come in and take five food items and five non-food items every day the pantry is open.

The pantry is open four days a week and they're always looking for donations.
