The Bethlehem university said a $19,985 grant award from the 2023-24 PA Hunger-Free Campus program–a statewide initiative to combat food insecurity and reduce hunger on college campuses–will be used to expand Mo’s Cupboard with the creation of two satellite locations: one on the South (Priscilla Payne Hurd) campus and one at the school’s Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Center (SMRC). The new locations will help improve student access to fresh and nonperishable food items, toiletries and cleaning supplies.

“We’re grateful to be awarded these funds which directly benefit Moravian students on campus that may need help,” said Greg Meyer, Dean for Community Wellness at Moravian University. “Mo’s Cupboard relies on donations of money and supplies from the community and while we’ve enjoyed tremendous support, additional funding for our students is a huge help and always welcome.”
