Serving the community with purpose

University of the Cumberlands cares about a lot of things, and providing food for local families is one of them.

Cumberlands’ annual food drive kicks off each fall, just ahead of the holiday season. In other words, a month’s worth of excitement, generosity, and literal tons of food is just around the corner! Our entire campus community works to collect goods most beneficial to families. We then partner with local churches and food banks to distribute the food to those most in need. We partner with these organizations to distribute our donated items: 

  • First Baptist Church Williamsburg
  • Williamsburg Independent Youth and Family Resource Center
  • Shiner Church of Christ 
  • Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic
  • Emergency Christian Ministries Shelter

All are welcome to donate non-perishable foods to the cause. Donations are collected in the Office of Student Affairs in the Boswell Campus Center.

Make a Donation

Don’t have time to run to the store? Not a problem. Monetary donations are welcome too and will be used to purchase items in bulk – which, technically, is often cheaper, thus providing even more food for local families.
