ABOUT REMY'S CUPBOARD

Remy's Cupboard, Ringling College of Art and Design’s food and hygiene pantry, is an initiative spearheaded by the Center for Diversity & Inclusion and All Faiths Food Bank. The pantry is a free resource available to students, faculty, and staff currently enrolled or employed at Ringling College of Art and Design.

 

Remy's Cupboard strives to alleviate food and hygiene insecurity and hunger within the RCAD community by providing supplemental food, nutrition education, hygiene items, and resources to students, faculty, and staff in need.

 

The pantry was launched by the Center for Diversity and Inclusion in 2021 as a direct response to the knowledge that the continuous rise of cost for college tuition, living expenses, and inflation nationally have contributed to increasing difficulty for our campus community members to balance the costs of living and obtaining a degree with the costs of essentials such as food and other personal expenses. As a result, some students face food and hygiene insecurity while attending the college, and supplemental food assistance may assist in allowing students to focus on their studies.

 

By providing emergency food and hygiene assistance, Remy's Cupboard works to meet the needs of our student, staff and faculty populations, promote student success and retention, connect, support, and share resources to fight food insecurity and the lack of nutritious food accessibility, and ensure that no one at RCAD would have to choose between buying course materials or buying groceries.
