  •  Cap Cupboard is here!
    We are excited to announce a new initiative from the Cap Cupboard - “Bags for Break.” We have pre-prepared bags of food that will last for several days: one version geared toward residential students (microwavable, ready-to-eat foods) and one geared toward commuters (some foods that require preparation). We will have coverage the entire winter break - if a student needs access to the Cap Cupboard, they should email us at capcupboard@capital.edu so that we can serve them as quickly as possible.

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Have a great end of the semester and winter break!
