Crimson Cupboard offers free healthy food to IU Bloomington students who are struggling with food insecurity. Food insecurity is the limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods, or limited or uncertain ability to acquire acceptable foods in socially acceptable ways. Stocked by donations and staffed by volunteers, this special food pantry lessens the effects of poverty and food insecurity in our community.
How it works
Crimson Cupboard operates on the honor system. We will never ask you for financial information.
At your first visit to the pantry, you will complete a simple client form, which asks for general personal and demographic information. At each following visit, we will ask for your name. You can visit the pantry once a week.
Request Meal Points
