LAKEWOOD, CO - The Student Life department at Red Rocks Community College (RRCC) will host an opening ceremony for the college's new Student Pantry.

For those interested in making a monetary donation to support the Student Pantry, donations can be made online at Please indicate you want the donated funds to be directed to the Lakewood Student Pantry.

"The new RRCC Student Pantry is a key part to a bigger goal of reducing the food insecurities within our RRCC community," says Dr. Steven Zeeh, the Director of Campus Life. "Of course, our vision for a more inclusive and accessible pantry would not have been possible without the continued support from the RRCC Foundation, RRCC staff and faculty, the Food Bank of the Rockies, as well as other non-profit community partners. We still have a lot of work to do but we hope that the new RRCC Student Pantry is a symbol to the Lakewood community that we, as a college, are committed to holistically meeting the needs of our students and community."
