UNLV Cares Food Pantry - Summer Hours

Posted: June 2, 2013

UNLV Cares Food Pantry, a GPSA recognized student organization, collects donations from the UNLV community to assist students and staff during these tough economic times. The idea is to provide a mode of support for members of the UNLV community struggling to afford food through a discreet system that allows Rebels to help one another. We hope to make this Food Pantry permanently available, and will continue to work towards this goal. We are counting on campus generosity to restock our shelves. So please drop off canned goods and nonperishable foods in donation boxes located at: Lied Library, the Student Union, and the Student Wellness and Recreation Center. IDs are not checked of those that utilize the Food Pantry. Policy is: open to everyone at UNLV. Also, if you are in a teaching position please let your students know that this resource is available to them.

The UNLV Cares Food Pantry is located at the UNLV Paradise Campus. 851 E. Tropicana Avenue Las Vegas, NV 89119. The pantry is located in the PAR6 building which is in the back of the Paradise Campus. The Paradise Campus is located at the corner of Swenson and Tropicana Avenue. Swenson is one-way only at Tropicana exiting out of McCarran, so entering Boch St. from Tropicana is best. If you are going West on Tropicana turn left on Bock St., the street before Swenson. If you're going East on Tropicana, it’s the street right after Swenson, turn right on Bock St.

Food distribution times: 1 pm to 6pm.

Please allow for some flexibility during the summer distribution dates and times. Any changes will be made as far ahead of time as possible. Please check our Facebook page for updates or changes to this schedule.

Food distribution dates:

June 5th; June 19th; July 3rd; July 17th; August 7th; August 21st
