Campus Food Pantry Resources
The Captain’s Cupboard and Eagle Essentials Food Pantries are dedicated to providing hygiene and non-perishable food items for Georgia Southern University students who seek aid.
The Captain’s Cupboard Food Pantry located on the Armstrong campus is a resource for the Armstrong and Liberty Center campuses that helps students, faculty, and staff who are in need of supplementary food items, hygiene products, and menstrual products. This initiative was started through a donation made to the Armstrong location and can only serve students, faculty, and staff on the Armstrong and Liberty campuses.
An Eagle Essentials Food Pantry located on the Statesboro campus is a resource that helps students, faculty, and staff who are in need of supplementary food items, hygiene products, and menstrual products. This initiative has been established by the Dean of Students Office. Students, faculty, and staff who are affiliated with any of the Georgia Southern campuses can request to access resources at the Statesboro location.
