The Cougar Cupboard is managed by Enactus and is a free service offering essential products to all current Indiana University Kokomo students. NO QUESTIONS ASKED!

The Cougar Cupboard is a food pantry that provides food assistance to all IU Kokomo students, faculty, and staff. We connect with the campus and community to fulfill our mission and vision and to advocate for those who experience food insecurity. We are an organization created by students, run by students, and sustained through passionate involvement and volunteering. We aim to educate the campus and community on issues surrounding hunger and food insecurity in Howard county and research ways to make a difference.


IU Kokomo Cougar Cupboard exists to serve all students, faculty, and staff through collaboration with the campus and community by fulfilling the need for an adequate food supply to promote success.
