Crimson Cupboard Student Food Pantry

Description: 

Parent Organization: Indiana University - Bloomington

Based on the research that has been completed on food scarcity within college campuses, the Crimson Cupboard was created to fulfill those needs of students here at Indiana University Bloomington. We provide non-persihable food items to all IU undergraduate and graduate students who may be in need of food assistance. Students will have the opportunity to shop in the pantry twice each month and they will be required to simply show their student I.D. card (Campus Access Card) to access the pantry. The amount of food that each student recieves depends on their demographic information such as: place of residence, family size, etc. Regardless, we serve to ensure that every student recieves what they need.

All students are eligible to volunteer with the pantry, and we ask that each individual maintain a high level of discretion when volunteering with Crimson Cupbaord.
