In-kind support totaling $5,000 will provide support for various college events and activities throughout the year. Some of these include the Mental Health Fair, Salsa Tasting Competition judging, Winterfest, providing food coupons, and raffle items.

“NLC is excited to begin this partnership with Whataburger,” says Dr. Veronica Garcia, NLC president.  Their monetary funding will equip our Advocacy Center with the resources to better address food insecurity among NLC students and their in-kind support will expand and enhance our community and student programming. We are grateful for Whataburger’s support and generosity.”
