Walmart donates to EPCC Students with Food Insecurity

 The El Paso Community College (EPCC) Student Government Association (SGA) received a $500 check from Walmart check to support the Tejano Food Pantry.

EPCC officials say this donation will be used to purchase food items to help students in need during Thanksgiving season.

“Food insecurity is an issue that almost half of our student body at EPCC has dealt with. This helps a lot for our student body in conjunction with our Tejano Food Pantry.” Alex Rodriguez, SGA President said. “This donation also gives us the opportunity to hand out turkeys on top of our standard basket of goods that the pantry provides!”

The check from Walmart was presented by Representative Art Fierro, former Chairman of the EPCC Board of Trustees.

“This is the time of the year that partners like Walmart and our office get involved and they are able to give back to the community and to be partners with EPCC,” Representative Art Fierro said. “I wish we can contribute more because the need is here; this group of students gives back to the community, so this check is just the tip of the iceberg to help.”

The Tejano Food Pantry, a service created by a student for the students, is operated by the Student Government Association at EPCC.

The Tejano Food Pantry aims to minimize hunger among our students by providing free, accessible and nutritious food.

The pantry is located at the Valle Verde Campus, 919 Hunter Dr., room C102. For more information, call (915) 831- 2077.
