GMS Community Cupboard

A GMS Pilot Project from the

“Making Ends Meet” Initiative

The Guidelines

Welcome to the GMS Community Cupboard! Even with the best of budgeting, finances can run short near the end of the month. Rent, tuition, books, utilities, babysitter, cell phone, gas, car payments, fees and more fees. It all adds up.

To help you make ends meet, we set up a pantry in suite L306 for GMS students and post-doctoral fellows. It is stocked with canned and boxed foods, and some basic personal hygiene goods. Please take only the items you will actually use so that we have plenty for everyone. Bring a bag!

Have a suggestion?  Complete this form.

Where: GMS Suite L306
When: Currently open on request by email
How: Bring a bag! The pantry will be unlocked with a helpful staff member on standby

So far this is a simple, grass roots effort.  We’re working on higher tech approaches for your convenience and our management needs, but we’re not there yet. Right now our priority is getting resources to you in a friendly, confidential space as soon as possible.

Products offered are dependent on their availability, as well as our financial situation. We try to offer a healthy variety, while providing basic food needs and hygiene products.
