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.
- I have not eaten for a whole day due to lack of funding.
- I am skipping meals due to lack of funding.
- I worry that my food will run out before I get money to buy more.
- I have had to choose to pay bills or obtain shelter (and other basic needs) instead of eating regularly.
- I have lost weight because I do not have enough money for food.
We understand that everyone's situation is different, and everyone has different needs. Please contact Allison Lyon at Allison.Lyon@Armstrong.edu 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.
