History

During 2010, several members of the President’s Advisory Committee organized a holiday food drive to benefit members of the UNLV community who were facing economic duress due to the forced pay cuts and furloughs. The response from both donors and recipients was tremendous, and the UNLV Food Pantry was born. The Food Pantry is supported by UNLV CSUN, GPSA, and the School of Allied Health Sciences.
