The Cupboard


No gift is too small. Monetary donations allow us to stock the shelves, especially with high-nutrient foods or items missing from our current inventory. We may also use monetary donations to purchase gift cards to give to students so they may purchase fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy, and meat.

If you have any questions or comments, please email the Cupboard Operations Coordinator at Please contact Michele Miller at during the summer months.
