Pi Alpha Alpha, the Public Affairs Honors Society, is collaborating with the Comet Cupboard during its “Don’t Let Hunger Hide Campaign.” Donations of cereal, canned soup, peanut butter and canned vegetables are being collected in Green Hall 2.244 through November 22.
The Comet Cupboard, which opened in October 2012, is a UT Dallas on-campus food pantry that is available to all currently enrolled students, free of charge. Students who present their Comet Card can receive up to four items each day. In order to offer this wide variety of healthy options to the more than 200 students who have begun using the service each week, the Cupboard relies on monetary donations and non-perishable food items donated by on-campus supporters and the outside community.
The Cupboard is located at MC1.604 (in the basement of the library building), and is open from noon to 6 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday, from 2 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 3 pm to 6 pm on Fridays.
