No student should go hungry: Cuesta College has opened a food pantry, and it's already seen more than 400 visits in the past few weeks. The Cougar Food Pantry, located on the SLO campus, offers a convenient stop for food insecure students (Cuesta College campus is also a Food Bank distribution site). There are a variety of foods available to feed these young minds, including canned tuna, beans, quinoa, and other non-perishable items. The food pantry is open to currently enrolled students on Mondays from 2 to 4 p.m., Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to noon, Wednesdays from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m., and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (located in room 5305; go to cuesta.edu for more info) ... Just as Kelsey See Canyon Vineyards in SLO was preparing to release its new 2017 albariño, a rare white peacock flew into the vineyard. A local Edna Valley couple found the peacock wandering on their property and gave the bird to the winery, adding to Kelsey's already famed peacock flock. The white bird, aptly named "Albariño," (Al for short) now calls the winery grounds home. See for yourself (and taste the new albariño offerings at kelseywine.com). Δ
