Student Author Contest

1

NACAS is committed to enriching the campus experience so students can learn and grow. Through the Student Author
Contest, NACAS encourages students to reflect on the college/university issues that they consider to be the most important. It's an opportunity for students to get involved in the Association and reflect on the impact of auxiliary services on
their campuses. This year, students were asked to write an essay on the following: What organizations and companies has
your school partnered with across campus to have a positive impact on the community? How have these partnerships
positively impacted your college experience?"

Feeding
student success

Kaitlyn Wanta is pursuing her Bachelor of Arts in
Communications. Her work with the University of
Wisconsin Stevens Point's Food Pantry has both
opened her eyes to the reality of food insecurity
and developed her passion of advocating for those
who cannot.
BY KAITLYN WANTA

s the Coordinator for The Cupboard food
pantry at the University of WisconsinStevens Point, I have the privilege
of witnessing the campus community and
community at large come together to fulfill
one mission of, "Feeding Student Success."
The Cupboard is a department of the Student
Involvement Employment Office at UWSP.

CO LLEGE SERVI CE S | SUM M E R 2017

Last year, The Cupboard received just over
11,876 pounds of food to satisfy approximately
1,253 visits from students.
As The Cupboard Coordinator, the responsibility of stocking the pantry with thousands of
pounds of nourishing food each year falls on
me, so that students needing emergency or
supplemental food can receive it. Students do

not need to show any proof of financial status,
they simply need to show they are a student
and indicate that they are in need of food. Since
its establishment in 2011, The Cupboard has
created partnerships with many areas on campus, galvanizing a truly collaborative campus
atmosphere, seen as I delineate the continuity
of these partnerships in the following text.
