The Campus Cupboard: Free Food for Auggies!

About the Campus Cupboard:

The Augsburg University food shelf, Campus Cupboard, provides free food to students.  The Campus Cupboard is just one piece of Augsburg’s Campus Kitchen program- Click here to learn about Campus Kitchen’s other work.

Campus Cupboard and Campus Kitchen are housed within the Sabo Center for Democracy and Citizenship, our campus community and civic engagement office. There are lots of ways to get involved with our work!

During the pandemic, the Campus Cupboard team continues to provide free food to Auggies, in the form of deliveries! Contact with questions or concerns.

Students who live on campus(or live off campus but can pick up their food on campus):

 Fill out an order form to receive free groceries for pickup in the Urn/Mort Lobby. You can fill out the form up to one time per week!

We drop off groceries on-campus deliveries on Monday and Wednesday afternoons during the summer.

Campus Cupboard gladly accepts monetary donations. To support us during this time, donate through Augsburg’s general donation page. Make sure to designate your donation to Other>Campus Kitchen. 

We also accept nonperishable food donations. Contact us to learn about what items we need these days!


The Campus Cupboard, which opened in February 2013, is the work of partnership between faculty, staff, and students who originally came together as part of the Fighting Poverty at Augsburg special interest group and the Creating an Inclusive Campus conference. The food shelf is run by Campus Kitchen.

Cooking at the Food Lab:

Campus Kitchen hosts open cooking hours in the Food Lab (Hagfors 108)! The Food Lab is stocked with lots of cooking appliances available for student use. We have some ingredients available to share, and please bring your own as well.
