The El Paso Community College (EPCC) Tejano Food Pantry received a generous donation of food baskets from Horizon Heights Elementary School and Burger King.
During a Monday news conference EPCC officials said the donation will help students during the holiday who have food inadequacies.
“Burger King is proud to partner with Horizon Heights Elementary to see that EPCC students and their families in need receive a substantial meal this holiday season,” Bonnie Soria Najera, EPCC Board of Trustee member and Burger King Marketer said.
The Tejano Food Pantry, a service created by a student for the students, is operated by the Student Government Association at EPCC.
Officials add that the Tejano Food Pantry aims to minimize hunger among our students by providing free, accessible and nutritious food.
