The Captain’s Cupboard is a volunteer- and student-run organization that partners with the Good Shepard Food Bank to provide food and other resources to all SMCC students in need. All you need is your SMCC ID and current semester stickers. The Cupboard operates as a food “store” where students browse the shelves and take the resources they need and want.
We understand that food insecurity comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, and we aim to help all students meet their meal needs, so they may better succeed in their academic endeavors at SMCC. Sometimes a student might just need a snack or meal to get through the day; in other cases, a student may need groceries for their family to get through the week. Regardless of the level of need, we want all students to feel comfortable stopping by, seeing what we have to offer, and picking what they need.
The Captain’s Cupboard is also partnering with the SMCC Culinary Arts department, operating a food recovery program in which precooked packaged meals, prepared by Culinary Arts students, are available at the Cupboard.
The Cupboard wishes SMCC a wonderful Thanksgiving, while reminding all that our hours are 9 to 11 a.m. Monday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, 9 to 11 a.m. Wednesday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday.
