Warrior Cupboard: On-Campus Food Shelf

The Warrior Cupboard is an on-campus food shelf for any WSU student. The Warrior Cupboard is located in the Integrated Wellness Complex, Room 130.

The goal is to ensure students have access to quality food on a regular basis through supplemental nutrition assistance when they need it.

If you're struggling to get enough to eat or if you're choosing to skip meals, so you can afford your textbooks or other expenses, consider reaching out to get access to this space. It's private, accessible, and easy to use.

Get the Help You Need

Food insecurity can lead to lower grades as well as poor physical and mental health.

There are basic needs support services available on campus and in the Winona community for any student who needs help.

For questions, please contact the Warrior Cupboard at warriorcupboard@winona.edu.

It's entirely free to use the Warrior Cupboard. You simply need to use your Warrior ID card to open the door to the room.

To request card access, complete the Warrior Cupboard Access Request Form on WarriorSpace.

Once you're granted access, you can use your ID card to access the Warrior Cupboard during regular IWC hours.
