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!


This fall, 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 a delivery request form to receive a bag of food for pickup in the Urn/Mort Lobby. You can fill out the form up to one time per week!

We drop off on-campus deliveries on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays between 3-4pm.

Students who live off campus:

Email or to sign up for an off-campus grocery delivery.


Campus Cupboard accepts monetary donations. We will continue purchasing high quality food from our partner/supplier Loaves and Fishes. To support us during this time, donate through Augsburg’s general donation page. Make sure to designate your donation to Other>Campus Kitchen. This is the best way to support us during this time.

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 supported 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.

Sign up to cook in the Food Lab in January 2021.


Learning how to cook on a budget is simple but takes some time. Students from a Religion 200 class created a cookbook that utilizes some of the items that you can often find inside the food shelf.
