Food Pantry

Cavalier Cupboard Logo
Hunger Task Force

Western Technical College’s Equity, Inclusion and Community Engagement department oversees the Cavalier Cupboard. This food pantry is designed to meet the immediate food needs of Western students by providing them with access to non-perishable food items, personal care products, school supplies, diapers, and information on local resources. This service is open to all Western students with a valid student ID. Students will be able to choose their own items each visit based on their household size and needs. We encourage individuals to take enough items to cover one week.  


The Cavalier Cupboard is located on the second floor of the Integrated Technology Center, La Crosse campus (on the left before the skywalk).
