The Campus Cupboard is a valuable campus resource that has served many students since its opening in 2015. It was developed through the collaborative efforts of the Rotaract Club, Dr. Elise Hepworth in the Music Dept. and the Division of Student Affairs. The Division of Student Affairs currently oversees the operation of the Cupboard.

The Cupboard is supplied with canned goods, and other nonperishable items, along with some personal care products. This is the result of campus food drives, and donations from individuals, business partners, as well as student and community organizations.

1. Canned meat (tuna, chicken, spam, etc.)
2. Condensed milk or shelf stable milk
3. Dry goods – pasta, noodles, rice, etc.
4. Peanut butter/jelly/shelf stable spreads
5. Canned soups and shelf stable meals
6. Fruit and/or pudding cups
