Campus Cupboard

Although we are fortunate to be part of a welcoming, resource-rich campus like Hood, we know that a handful of students, especially those without a campus meal plan, struggle with food and resource insecurity from time to time. This is a campus initiative designed to support such students—both graduate and undergraduate.  The Campus Cupboard aims to provide modest food staples and hygiene items to students with temporary or long-term need via a confidential system.

If you are currently experiencing food insecurity, fill out our interest form or email our secure mailbox at campuscupboard@hood.edu

The SHARE Food Network provides wholesome, nutritious foods to families and individuals at a reduced cost, promotes volunteer service, and builds partnerships with local community organizations. Every month, a new SHARE menu will be available. Everyone is welcome to purchase—no application, qualification, identification, or documentation required. A sample menu is 5lb. of chicken drumsticks, 1 lb. ground chicken and 1lb. boneless pork chops, plus 8-10 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables for $23. EBT accepted.

The Campus Cupboard is stocked solely by donations from the Hood campus community. Thank you for your continued support and generosity! If you would like to donate, please see our list of priority items here. If you would like to host a drive to support the Campus Cupboard, please email campuscupboard@hood.edu. 

Individuals, groups, organizations and classes are welcome to volunteer with the Campus Cupboard. Please send the following information to campuscupboard@hood.edu so your service day can be scheduled:

  • What day(s) are you looking to volunteer?

  • How many hours are you (your group) available?
