Charger Cupboard and Food Pantry

nullIn an effort to support students who struggle with food insecurities or lack the financial ability to purchase food or personal items, Briar Cliff University has established the Charger Cupboard. This Charger Cupboard is an on-campus food pantry that provides non-perishable foods and personal care items to students in need. 

We're appreciative of the support we have received from our caring community that enables us to continue this essential campus service. Please consider donating items or funds. Funds donated will be used to support the purchase of nonperishable foods and personal care items for the students on campus and as a stipend for one staff member to maintain inventory, purchase and pick up the merchandise, and to run the Cupboard with scheduled distribution days.

Due to campus facilities being restricted, the Charger Cupboard is not accepting merchandise donations at this time based on the COVID-19 guidelines to help mitigate the spread.
