The goal of The Stand is to provide emergency food resources to increase students’ ability to concentrate in school and be successful in classes, and to provide access to free professional and business casual attire appropriate for career fairs, interviews, daily life and the workplace, thereby increasing self-esteem and success.
“We are proud to open this important resource for our students” said Dr. Pamela T. Luster, president of Mesa College. “Food insecurity impacts students every day, and we will now be able to help our students stay focused on their academic journey.”
The Stand is located on the second floor of the Student Services Center, next to Parking Lot 1, off Marlesta Drive and Genesee Avenue. For more information, see www.sdmesa.edu/TheStand or call 619-388-2759.
