The Classroom Cupboard is strategically located a few classrooms from the main entrance in the high school in an effort to help reduce the stigma of being food insecure. The room is brightly decorated on the inside and outside with attractive signage.

Beyond the distribution of food, which solves an immediate need, this program serves as a way to connect peers with one another and parents to resources. It teaches the students involved in the Outreach Club and the Random Acts of Kindness Club skills like managing a business and strengths like empathy.


The Classroom Cupboard was also featured on the Food Podcast!
