Cougar Cupboard

The No-Questions-Asked Food Pantry for Indiana University Kokomo

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 no-questions-asked food pantry for all Indiana University Kokomo students, faculty, and staff.

We’re here because we get it; we’ve all been there. 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. Here’s a full list of what you’ll find:

Have a food allergy? Not to fear! Gluten-free items are available by request.
