Cougar Cupboard 2: Operated by Peeps Pantry - University of Houston
Skip to main content


PEEPS Pantry is pleased to announce that we have merged with Cougar Cupboard and will be better equipped to help students who may be experiencing financial hardship. We know students can struggle when they’re worried about their next meal or bill. That’s why we are here to help. Using both Cougar Cupboard and Cougar Cupboard 2 can help offset your monthly expenses by $200 or more! The pantry, housed in the College of Education, is open to all currently enrolled UH students in any college and is supported by donations, volunteers and assistance from Cougar Cupboard. Students are welcome to use both! There is no “sign up” required to use Cougar Cupboard 2 but please make an appointment via Navigate. (Students will need to sign up to use Cougar Cupboard; please visit their website for details.)

Visit Cougar Cupboard 2

Cougar Cupboard 2 is run by students and if the student on duty calls in sick, that will necessitate a cancellation. We look forward to serving you and hopefully there will be minimal disruption during the semester.

Cougar Cupboard 2 appointments are currently open with limited hours. Appointments will be open for two weeks at a time. Students are limited to one appointment per week. Thank you for your patience as we work to restructure for increased demand.

ABOUT Cougar Cupboard 2

PEEPS Pantry opened in response to a great need — roughly 48% of college students nationwide identify as food insecure, uncertain how they will afford their next meal. Laura Lee, the student success coordinator at the UH College of Education, launched the pantry as part of the College’s multipronged PEEPS program. PEEPS stands for Personal Early Educational Support, and the overall program is designed to assist students with their academics as well as their social and emotional well-being. The pantry is now open to all UH students facing food insecurity.

PEEPS Pantry is happy to merge with Cougar Cupboard to offer students additional options for increased food access across campus!
