Creighton Cupboard

While food insecurity isn’t always easily noticeable, it’s an issue that impacts a significant number of college students.

According to a study by the University of Wisconsin HOPE Lab, 36 percent of students at four-year institutions identify

as having “low” (reduced quality, variety or desirability of diet) or “very low” (multiple indications of disrupted eating and

reduced food intake) food security.

To combat food insecurity at Creighton, the Creighton Cupboard provides complete meals for undergraduate, graduate and

professional students who identify as food insecure. The pantry is supported by Division of Student Life staff and student

employees. The Cupboard is one of more than 650 on-campus food pantries in the United States, according to the College

and University Food Bank Alliance.

To sign up to receive meals, find additional resources, make a donation or learn how to register a food drive,
