Bulldog Pantry turns 3!

The 3rd week in November, the Bulldog Pantry celebrated 3 years of success. In November 2007, the Bulldog Pantry opened its doors for the first time with approximately 20 families and about 8 volunteers. To date, we serve, at times, over 200 families each week, and several hundred different Fresno State volunteers. Thank you to everyone who has made this such a success!
