Mobile Lobo Food Pantry

The UNM Mobile Food Pantry was initiated to support students, faculty, and the great UNM community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the campus transitioning back to in-person courses, we have primarily transitioned our focus to the Campus Food Pantry.


The Mobile Food Pantry is not currently an active resource. Please refer below for additional community resources.

We are always happy to accept help to keep the Campus Lobo Food Pantry going. Since the Mobile Lobo Food Pantry began in 2014, we are proud to have served over 8,700 students and families by providing them with free groceries. We have since transitioned to have all donations go to the Campus Food Pantry. Many students and families cannot afford to buy food. Please help us to continue serving our students by donating today.
