From Chaplain Derek: We are grateful for the continuous support by alums and the Alumnae Association of Sarah’s Cupboard. Usage of the Cupboard is up again this semester. As I write this, the Federal government shutdown is threatening timely payments of SNAP benefits starting in February. We have a number of students who help make ends meet through this program. We are working through the Cupboard to support these students as best we can. As always, we seek healthy, shelf-stable food and snacks. Granola bars and protein bars of all varieties have been a hot commodity this fall and are greatly appreciated, as are fruit cups. While I wouldn’t necessarily put it in the “healthy” category, microwaveable Mac and Cheese cups are also a big hit. Thank you again for helping make this vital program so successful!
