Wayne Campus Cupboard & Food Pantry
The Wayne Campus Cupboard is currently open!
The Wayne Campus Cupboard provides students in periodic need with access to the basic necessities for daily living. All enrolled UA students — undergraduate, graduate or commuter — have access to an assortment of non-perishable food and hygiene items. When students are in a financial pinch, due to unforeseen circumstances, we can help reduce worries by providing them with food and personal hygiene items.
The Campus Cupboard program was created from data collected at UA and national college student trends; both of which determined that there’s a segment of the student body that is food insecure and would consider making use of a campus food pantry. For national data on food insecurity and basic needs for college students, please visit Hope4College.com.
