Student helps start food pantry on Western's campus

Cavalier Cupboard

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Western Technical College students are stepping up to put food on their classmates' tables.

They hosted a kick-off food drive Thursday for the newly-created Cavalier Cupboard. It will be a campus food pantry for the students to use.

A student started the idea after realizing some of her classmates were going without a meal.

Students will be allowed to visit once a week and get enough food for three or four meals. "I'm just really thankful that we're able to serve our students and to help them eliminate their stress in life. I feel that this will make them more academically successful," said Western's Community Engagement Coordinator Kari Reyburn.

The pantry is partnering with the Hunger Task Force to get some supplies.
