Donate to the Indiana University Kokomo Food Pantry

College students have enough to worry about: paying rent, making friends, getting to class on time, and graduating. They shouldn’t have to worry about where they'll find their next meal. Thanks to donations from generous people like you, the Cougar Cupboard serves students, faculty, and staff who experience food scarcity at any time for any reason.

If you’d like to help out by donating to the Cougar Cupboard, you can drop off items by bringing them to the front desk at the Cole Fitness Center in the basement of the Kelley Student Center. Want to help but don’t have extra items to bring? You can also give monetary gifts to the Cougar Cupboard. 

Below are some of our most needed items for our students:

  • Peanut butter
  • Canned chicken/tuna
  • Beans
  • Canned chili
  • Nuts

  • Canned fruits and vegetables
  • Applesauce
  • Tomato juice
