The Cupboard

The Cupboard is a food pantry open to any current UWSP student who needs emergency or supplemental food.

Thousands of students receive need-based financial aid and hundreds are enrolled in food assistance and WIC programs. Many more students encounter short-term financial emergencies and find themselves choosing between buying food and paying other bills. The Cupboard was created to help students meet their basic needs so that they can focus on succeeding in school.

The Cupboard is staffed by student volunteers. A committee of dedicated volunteers organize food drives, raise awareness, and recruit volunteers. If you’d like to get involved, please email  Jennie Stage at
