As The Cupboard approaches its third anniversary this fall, a Dining Services cookout raised nearly $700 for the pantry and awareness about its availability to students battling food insecurity. For $7.50 each, all of which benefits the Bush Campus Center facility, students could enjoy burgers, hot dogs, pasta salad, chips, beverage and dessert outside the Keystone Dining Room. Donations of canned goods and nonperishables were also accepted, and giveaways provided information on additional ways to contribute.
