provide The Cupboard
with the bare minimum
food choice, but also
generously give a wide
variety of food for students to receive a wellbalanced meal. Other
off campus areas that
have collaborated with
The Cupboard include:
Noodles & Company,
Trig's, Holy Spirit Parish,
St. Bronislava Church,
and Central Wisconsin
Symphony Orchestra.
If still unclear, The
Cupboard's success is
galvanized by truly collaborate efforts between
the campus community
and the community at
large. When outside organizations host events for The Cupboard, a harmonious community
with a synonymous goal creates. Working with such partnerships for a year and a half as
The Cupboard Coordinator have completely transformed my life. I would not have thought
that such intentionality and commitment in this position would make such radical changes
for the students on campus. Since The Cupboard's establishment in 2011, the number of
students who utilize the services have multiplied by five and the amount of food coming
in has more than doubled.
After witnessing first-hand the struggle of my peers and myself to make it through college
financially, I have come to realize the power of what even the smallest act of kindness can
do for the spirit of one person. Countless students have expressed their utmost gratitude
for even one bag of food from The Cupboard they receive that week. Other students have
no words when they had nothing after a house fire, only to visit The Cupboard and receive
more than they need. I have gained tremendous humility in this position because in no
way can I take credit for the blessing The Cupboard is to so many students and I would be
incapable to write this article if it were not for the supportive and generous partnerships
that help feed student success. Yes, my position as The Cupboard Coordinator is a job, but
I will never underestimate the fact that I have chosen a job all about serving others.
