Providing non-perishable food items, toiletries, and school supplies to all UVA Wise students in need — both commuters and residential students
Smiddy’s Cupboard, located in the Division of Student Affairs Office in Cantrell Hall, was created by the Committee on Student Hunger & Homelessness (COSHH). It officially opened in August 2018.
Food Pantry Hours
The food pantry is open on Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Smiddy’s Cupboard is furnished by the generous donations of the UVA Wise community and the community-at-large.
