Student Services: Captain’s Cupboard Food Pantry

We are pleased to introduce one of Armstrong's newest initiatives, the Captain's Cupboard, out of the Office of Student Life. The Captain's Cupboard is meant to serve as an emergency food program for students, faculty, and staff in need. 

Students, Faculty, and Staff

How It All Works

Those that are in need of the emergency food program will begin by completing a new client request form. From there, participants will have an in-take meeting with the Interim Director of Student Life, Lucero Aradillas. Once approved, the individual will be eligible to submit for a bag of food to be picked up from the Office of Student Life every two weeks.

How Do I Know If I Am Eligible?

Do you identify with any of the statements below? If so, please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance.

We understand that everyone's situation is different, and everyone has different needs. Please contact Allison Lyon at or 912.344.2504 to set up a time to talk about your situation. Our goal is to support you during your time of need as an emergency food program and connect you to other campus and community resources that can help you in securing stable funding or resources for food.

Begin the Process

I Want To Donate

Donations are always greatly appreciated to help this program continue to operate. If you wish to donate dry goods to the pantry, please bring those to the Office of Student Life in the Memorial College Center Room 201. Have a question? Please do not hesitate to give us a call at 912.344.2504.
