CCMA CUA The Cardinal Cupboard
Food Insecurity has become a rising issue on 4-year college campuses with notable attention in the District of Columbia. The Cardinal Cupboard will be a resource that meets the immediate needs of students and staff experiencing hunger, as well as providing additional resources to increase food security. This 4-year project will meet the priority area of Healthy Futures by providing the campus community with healthy, nutritious food, and essential non-food items, while employing a holistic approach to providing critical resources to address the issues food insecurity and concomitant issues (e.g. homelessness, and poverty). Establishment of working relationships with internal and external partners will provide needed referral sources, and information repositories, as well as solutions to assist members of the Catholic University community in alleviating food insecurity in the long term. The decrease in the incidence of food insecurity will ultimately help increase the completion of academic degrees, which will help in the acquisition of gainful employment, and allow a person to be an active contributor to society. When a person is gainfully employed, they contribute economically by being a tax-paying citizen and reduce the need of social and support services.
