Student Food Cupboard

The Student Food Cupboard welcomes Winona State University-Rochester students as well as RCTC students. The goal of the Student Food Cupboards is to provide an easily-accessible, conveniently-located, and well-stocked Student Food Cupboard and to assist our students in combating hunger. RCTC Student Life will work with our RCTC and WSU-R student users to determine which products we should carry and we are establishing a partnership with area food banks in order to appropriately stock, oversee, and manage our inventory. RCTC Student Life will also continue to host food drives during Homecoming Week, Fan Appreciation Nights, Student Life Activities, and other events when possible.

The Student Food Cupboard will be open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm in CC406 in the fourth floor of College Center.
