Burglary adds to ‘a very difficult time’ for UC Irvine food and toiletries pantry

No items were reported missing, but Fresh Basic Needs Hub director Andrea Gutierrez said the burglary has lowered morale. … “We’ve been very challenged in the past few weeks trying to figure out how to continue to serve our student body and continue with food distribution in the middle of the [coronavirus] pandemic,” she said. “We’re still working with student staff, but it’s just been a very difficult time.”
