*The Cupboard is in need of "Dry Good Items." This includes Mac and Cheese cups, Ramen, peanutbutter, jelly, oatmeal, chips, crackers, etc. Please see the Word Document below for dontations that are most beneficial for students.*


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. 

Monetary donations are also welcomed and accepted! You can donate to the Cupboard's foundation account by clicking here. In order to donate to the Cupboard, follow these steps:

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!
