Student Cupboard

Helping Students in Need

The BTC Student Cupboard provides supplemental food and other necessities for current students and their families who are in need. Our vision is to ensure no BTC student goes hungry because of a lack of income or access to food.

We will remain open to students throughout the summer. From now until the beginning of the Fall semester, you can request a no-contact pick-up or schedule an appointment to shop in-person.

Request a no-contact pick-up:

Email to request a no-contact pick-up. In the email, please detail:
  • The number of children (age 0-17), adults (age 18-64), and seniors (age 65+) in your household.
  • Any particular items you need/want included.

Within 1-3 business days, a member of the Student Cupboard will reply to your email and let you know when your items are ready for pick-up. Once available, you can pick-up your order at Central Campus during regular business hours.

Schedule an appointment to shop in-person:
