cardinal cupboard

If you haven't seen it in the SAC, the Commonwealth Credit Union Cardinal Cupboard, is a student-run food pantry located on UofL’s Belknap Campus. Its purpose is to reduce food waste and food insecurity. In 2021, Commonwealth Credit Union established the Bettering Lives Fund with the University of Louisville to support and renovate the Cardinal Cupboard food pantry, renaming it the Commonwealth Credit Union Cardinal Cupboard. The food pantry gives students, staff, and faculty who may be facing financial burdens free access to nutritious food. Not only that, it provides an experience of shopping at a boutique grocery store. As of May 2022, the cupboard has had nearly 5,500 visits. And since the beginning of this year, the cupboard has collected nearly 4,000 pounds of food to keep the shelves stocked.

It's all about going beyond accounts and services and embracing the opportunity to build a stronger U of L community, a community we invest in through service.
