About

Roadrunner Tuesday is a special time of year when Roadrunners come together to fight food insecurity at MSU Denver. This year, you can ensure no Roadrunner goes hungry when you make a gift to the Rowdy's Corner (formally the Roadrunner Food Pantry) during our annual fundraising event.  

The food pantry has seen a record number of visits this semester, with nearly 700 students making 1000 visits to the food pantry every week - an increase from an average of 400 students visiting the food pantry in previous semesters. To continue meeting the overwhelming demand for food assistance and ensure no Roadrunner goes hungry, we need your support!

Hunger is a reality faced by many students in our Roadrunner community. Whether our students skip a meal because they are low on funds or don't consume enough quality food, without access to nutritious meals, it can be difficult to focus on learning – especially when you don’t know where your next meal will come from.

Rowdy's Corner

One year ago, the Roadrunner Food Pantry became Rowdy's Corner. It provides students free weekly access to a range of food options, hygiene products and school supplies in a shopping-like experience. This marketplace, designed by students, will also provide students with charging stations, social dining space and access to microwaves, utensils and other amenities. At Rowdy’s Corner, students can get connected to public benefits support, community resources, Student Care Center Case Management services and attend nutrition and food preparation workshops. Through intentional community and campus partnerships, Rowdy’s Corner seeks to eliminate food insecurity for all MSU Denver students and help build resilient local food systems.

Your Support 
On Nov. 28, you can change the lives of MSU Denver students facing food insecurity by making your gift to the Roadrunner Food Pantry. No student should worry about where they will find their next meal. With your support, we can provide food assistance to those who need it most. 

Any gift, no matter the size, will impact the life of a Roadrunner during their time of need.
