Aggie Cupboard fights hunger with new support from NMSU

A major resource to New Mexico State University, focused on battling food insecurities, collected a $9,000 gift to aid in the fight from the NMSU Foundation.

Aggie Cupboard, a food pantry that provides bags of nutritious, non-perishable food items to students and employees in need at NMSU and Dona Ana Community College, received this investment as a result of the University’s third-annual Giving Tuesday on Nov. 28.

While presenting the check to Aggie Cupboard volunteers, Chancellor Garrey Carruthers and his wife Kathy announced they would make an additional $1,000 contribution on behalf of the entire NMSU system for its continued efforts in being a caring community.
