CANYON -- WT has a new student food pantry for less fortunate students.

It's called Buffs Can, and the grand opening was Tuesday around lunchtime.

It's Souper Tuesday. Students can donate $2 or two cans of food, and they'll get a hot bowl of soup of lunch. Proceeds benefit Buffs Can.

The pantry is in the CORE Office in JBK Suite 103.

Buffs Can provides non-perishable food items to students who don't have all the food they need.
