The Colonel’s Cupboard runs entirely off of donations! Our mission is to provide emergency food to students in need. We provide a list of food items we currently accept.  By limiting donations to a few select food items we have a more consistent stock, and provide food that is nutritional and students can consume.

We have also begun to accept donations of certain toiletry items at the Cupboard. 

Donations may be dropped off anytime during regular business hours to Student Life (128 Powell Building) or at the Colonel’s Cupboard, Commonwealth Hall 212 (near the Parking Office).

We are also happy to work with any office, department, student organization, or community group that would like to host a food drive for the Cupboard. Please contact us at 859-622-3855 or if this is something your group might like to do!

At this time, we are limiting donations to the non-perishable items listed below plus paper plates, bowls, utensils, and some toiletry items. 

Note:For safety reasons, we cannot redistribute homemade products or open items. Sorry for the inconvenience.
