Raider Red's Food Pantry

Raider Red Food Pantry Logo


In November 2018, we had our FIRST fundraising campaign for supporting Raider Red's Food Pantry and fighting food insecurity among our students.  Our goal was to raise $2,000 for the month of November, but we raised over $2,000 in 24 hours!  We then raised the goal to $3,500.  By the end of the month, we raised a total of $4,115!  Food insecurity is an on-going battle and all donations help us fight hunger and food insecurity faced by our students.  We send a great big thank you to all of our donors who helped us surpass our goal.  We couldn't have done it without you all.



To reduce hunger and food insecurity among TTU students while encouraging campus engagement and education on how to reduce food insecurity.
