Starting every Wednesday at 12:30 p.m., students can stop by and pick up a bag of fresh fruits and vegetables along with non-perishables. Officials say the goal is to overcome one barrier that might be interfering with students’ education if they are struggling to afford food. Local food banks are helping stock the shelves and CNM hopes to collect donations from the campus community as well.
