Aggie Cupboard

Together we have raised $58,660 from 599 donors.


May 01, 2020

Save the Date: TUESDAY, MAY 5,2020!!


We believe that generosity has the power to unite and heal communities in good times and bad. A global threat like COVID-19 not only touches every person on the planet, but also presents an opportunity to come together as a global community.

#GivingTuesdayNOW is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place on

May 5, 2020, as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.


Join us in showing our students they are not alone. You can help by making a gift to any of the campaigns on Make A STATEment during #GivingTuesdayNOW on May 5th and by encouraging others to do the same.

Thank you for all your support during this critical time.

Thank you for all your support!

Thank you for all your continued support of the Aggie Cupboard! You are making an immediate impact on the lives of our NMSU Students, Faculty and community during this challenging time.


With the increased number of clients, maintaining supplies and resources to get through this crisis is not possible without your support! Here are two ways you can continue to help:


1- Please continue to share our link to fight food insecurity for our Aggies:


2- Volunteer for our next mobile food pantry Tuesday, April 28th. Interested volunteers are asked to arrive at the SW corner of Preciado Park in closed toe shoes at 11:45am. Masks and gloves will be provided. 


And don't forget to click "Read Update" for a message from Meg Long from our distribution center on campus!

You are making a difference!

Good Afternoon!


The community support of our students during this crisis has been incredibly inspiring! Because of you, our Aggies are receiving the critical food and supplies they need during these challenging times.


In March, the Aggie Cupboard served double the number of clients it served in February. You made this possible!


Thank you for your continued support during these unprecedented times. No one should have to face food insecurity. By continuing to work together, we can make sure that doesn't happen. This is an ongoing fight and we still need your help! If you know anyone who is able to help, please send them to our website to make their contribution: 


Thank you for your generous support.

Happy Holidays to you and yours!
