CSET wins Campus Cupboard Food Day Food Drive trophy

The UW-Green Bay College of Science, Engineering and Technology wins the travelling trophy for Most Items Donated to the UWGB Campus Cupboard during the Cupboard’s 2023 World Food Day Food Drive. In recognition of World Food Day, the UWGB Campus Cupboard and Clothing Closet, in collaboration with the UWGB Office of University Advancement, raised funds and food from October 16-20, 2023. An estimated 700 items were donated to the food pantry from various departments at UW-Green Bay, Green Bay campus. The winner of the Fall 2023 food drive was UWGB’s College of Science, Engineering and Technology (CSET) with an estimated 190 items donated. The college collected donations in two areas to maximize reach and impact the organization can make on the pantry. The college will receive the travelling trophy. However, CSET’s win did not come in a landslide. The UWGB Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL) was a very close second-place winner at 177 items. The UWGB Student Engagement Center (SEC) collected 117 items and receives the honor of third place. Honorable mentions are extended to the following UWGB department/units: Psychology, Student Accessibility Services, Athletics/UREC at the Kress Event Center, and University Advancement.

“Everyone’s support, especially CSET’s and CATL’s and SEC’s, has been very overwhelming this year,” J.D. Kulis, fifth-year student and student vice president & assistant manager for the Campus Cupboard. “We’re very thankful for every department’s participation and the support of our university’s Cupboards, and these contributions will continue to serve students at all four UW-Green Bay campuses. Our Campus Cupboard is a crucial lifeline for keeping so many students from so many backgrounds fueled and fired up, but we know that our campus and community will always be here to support us.”
