CINO Pantry

Open to everyone!

The CINO Pantry is a free food pantry open to any and all CCU students, faculty, and staff. Visitors do not need to qualify in any way or meet any requirements to use the pantry. The CINO Pantry is completely supplied through donations from the campus and community.

The CINO Pantry was created by students in an effort to help reduce hunger and improve nutrition on campus. The idea for the CINO Pantry originated in a University 110 class in 2012. The need for the pantry was determined based on the percentage of CCU students who received financial aid and the number of juniors and seniors who lived off campus and struggled with having enough money to cover the average amount of rent each month and still have enough money to buy food or a meal plan.

CINO Pantry is open to all students, faculty and staff. CINO Pantry is located in Lib Jackson Student Union B-214 and is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.


Pack the Pantry:

Parking Amnesty Week

 "Pack the Pantry: Parking Amnesty Week" is a new program that allows students, staff, faculty, and visitors to "pay" select parking citations by contributing five nonparishable food items to the CINO Pantry. Pack the Pantry takes place during the first week of classes in the fall semester.
