The Creighton Cupboard is an on-campus food pantry that serves our undergraduate, graduate, and professional students impacted by food insecurity. 

Location: Student Health Education & Compliance Office (KFC 225)

Who can use the Creighton Cupboard? All current undergraduate, graduate, and professional students experiencing any form of food insecurity. 

To combat food insecurity at Creighton, Creighton Cupboard provides a range of nonperishable food items and hygiene products. The pantry is supported by Student Life staff and student employees. The initiative is also made possible by support from our partners in Creighton Dining and Creighton Students Union. 

While food insecurity isn't always noticeable, it is an issue that impacts a significant number of college students. The United States Department of Agriculture defines the following food security levels:
