Rowdy's Coffee Club 
The food pantry has seen a record number of visits this semester, with nearly 325 students using the food pantry every week - an increase from an average of 175 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!

By making a recurring gift of $20/month, you will receive a custom travel coffee mug, have access to free daily coffee at Rowdy’s Corner and provide food assistance to four MSU Denver students throughout the academic year. 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. 

Rowdy's Corner
According to a March 2021 survey, 35% of MSU Denver students experience food insecurity, 39% cannot afford to eat balanced meals and 39% worry about running out of food before they can afford to buy more. With student visits increasing every semester, the Roadrunner Food Pantry reached its capacity in its original location. On Roadrunner Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2022, the food pantry will move to a space 10 times larger and rename itself Rowdy's Corner. The support of donors like you makes it possible for the food pantry to provide the support our students need during difficult times. 

Rowdy’s Corner is more than a food pantry and will provide 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 
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.

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