The Regis Cupboard

Hunger and food insecurity are realities everywhere, even on college campuses. Regis offers a student food pantry on the Northwest Denver Campus called the Cupboard. Initially funded by a grant from The Denver Post Community Foundation, The Cupboard will not only provide free meals and snacks for students and their families who are facing food insecurities, it will highlight an issue that often is ignored – college hunger.

Located in the Dayton Memorial Library, Room 114, on the 1st floor all one must do is enter the library from the North doors and we are down stairs on the first level, down the hall on the right side. You may also access the pantry using the elevator.  The Cupboard, initially funded by a grant from The Denver Post Community Foundation, provides free meals and snacks for students and their families who are facing food insecurities, and works to highlight an issue that often is ignored – college hunger. 

Together with Military and Veteran Services, The Cupboard partners with other University departments as well as faculty, staff, students and the larger community to tap into a shared passion for helping people and also raise awareness about reducing hunger, food insecurities and food waste.

How to Use the Pantry

Any current student at the Regis who is in need can stop by the Pantry to pick up free food and hygiene items and/or to get help connecting to university and community resources related to food insecurity. Just remember to bring your student ID card so we can verify that you’re a current Regis student.

It’s easy to help support Regis students by dropping off food and hygiene donations at the donation bins around campus. Please know that we cannot accept opened/used items; rusty, damaged or dented cans; expired food; homemade food; home canned food; alcohol; energy drinks; food with no label; or food that requires refrigeration or freezing. We also do not accept pet food or clothing.
