Cougar Cupboard

Cougar Cupboard: The Food Pantry for Indiana University Kokomo

While campus might be closed, the Cougar Cupboard is open and providing curbside service! 

To maintain social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic, Indiana University Kokomo’s Cougar Cupboard will operate from 2 to 4 p.m. Tuesdays and 10 a.m. to noon Fridays. Bring your Crimson Card ID, and drive up to the curb on the west entrance of the library (signs are posted). One of our friendly police officers will check your ID and bring you prepared bags of food. If you need hygiene items, just let the officer know when he/she checks your ID. If we have it, you will have it! 
If you are interested in donating, we currently cannot accept in-kind donations. However, you are welcome to make a financial donation.

How are you supposed to dive into communication theory or be fully present in your clinicals or ace that microeconomics final when your mind is stuck on your financial constraints? We understand how hard it is to focus when you’re worried about where you’ll find your next meal. That’s why we created the Cougar Cupboard, the food pantry for all Indiana University Kokomo students, faculty, and staff.

We’re here because we get it. In fact, the Cougar Cupboard was created by people just like you, students, faculty, and staff who truly care. The Cougar Cupboard is sustained through community volunteering and generosity.

Whether you need non-perishable items, hygiene products, or school supplies, you can find some help in the Cougar Cupboard. There will be a variety of non-perishable food items, hygiene products and school supplies are available to you at no charge. 

Have dietary restrictions? Let us know and we will do our best to help you find items you can eat.
