Aggie Cupboard Distributes Food to NMSU-A Students, Staff and Faculty
Aggie Cupboard Alamogordo first distributed food at NMSU-A in April this year. This is the first fall semester food from the Cupboard has been available for students, staff or faculty who need it.
All that’s required to receive a bag of food (about a dozen items) is a Banner ID number (NMSU ID#).
Aggie Cupboard is opening twice in August because of the beginning of the semester, and so that students who were impacted by the unexpected financial aid distribution changes would have somewhere to obtain food if needed. There were 15 individuals who came by for their bag of food on the Tuesday and Wednesday of the start of the fall semester. The NMSU Alamogordo Foundation provided a timely monetary donation to the Cupboard this month to help us cover our food purchase needs at the beginning of the semester.
Aggie Cupboard will be open again on Tuesday, August 25 and Wednesday, August 26.
Normally the Cupboard will be open on the Tuesday and Wednesday before the last weekend of each month. The last week of the month is often when many people find they need a little help with food until the first of the month when paychecks or other funds come in.
The exact dates of food distribution are listed on posters and bookmarks around campus.
Donations of non-perishable food items can be left in collection boxes placed around campus. Monetary donations are being handled in the President’s office by Mary Fechner who can be reached at 439-3696 or mFechner@nmsu.edu . ...
