Campus Cupboard is a food pantry located on the campus of Colgan Alternative Resource Center in St. Joseph, Missouri. The pantry is available to families with children enrolled at Colgan. It is stocked with healthy food supplied by Second Harvest Community Food Bank. Families have access to the pantry on a first come, first served basis.
Campus Cupboard began in 2012 as a pilot program that was designed to test the effectiveness of having an on-site food pantry available at a school, and to measure its sustainability and effectiveness in reducing food insecurity for children and families.
