Cougar Cupboard: Distribution Day

Wednesday, November 17, 2021

12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The University of Houston has opened the Cougar Cupboard in partnership with the Houston Food Bank’s Food for Change market network. The cupboard is available to all enrolled undergraduate or graduate students who may need access to additional food.

The Cougar Cupboard is located on the first floor of the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center, in UH Wellness, suite 1038, and is stocked full of fresh fruits and vegetables, frozen and refrigerated foods, and dry goods. Students can receive up to 30 lbs. of free groceries every week from Cougar Cupboard. To utilize the Cougar Cupboard, students must attend a one-time market orientation hosted by Cougar Cupboard staff and complete a short application for the Houston Food Bank’s Food Scholarship Program.

We will be meeting at 11:45 AM in front of Student Center South and walking over to parking lot F (outside TDECU Stadium) and will be volunteering in two shifts, one from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM the other from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM. We will be assisting the workers with check-in, set-up of the event, and distributing pallets of food to cars arriving for food deliveries.

You’ll receive a reminder email prior to the event containing more information, and if you have any questions, please contact Taylor Laredo or Shreya Agrawal.
