Hi, my name is Alexis Marcelo and I am a 4th year who is majoring in Electrical Engineering. I used the Pantry many times during my sophomore and junior year. They helped me out a lot when I had to go through financial burdens. Now since it is my last year being in college, I wanted to give back to the community for helping me through rough times but also to make sure that no student should go through missing a meal or without necessities while trying to pursue an education. I am so thankful The Pantry exists and I hope every student will take advantage of this awesome resource.
