All Week

Scrappy's Cupboard was founded to address food insecurity among University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) students. We provide emergency food assistance and referrals to all UTC students without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, pregnancy, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, physical or mental disability, or covered veteran status. Scrappy's Cupboard is coordinated by the Office of the Dean of Students and run by faculty, staff, and student volunteers from the UTC community.

 

There are three ways to donate to Scrappy's Cupboard during Homecoming Week:

1.) Visit one of the supply drop-off bins at any of the Homecoming Button Making programs throughout Homecoming week. There will be three opportunities to bring supplies to the donation bin:

2.) Donate items on Scrappy's Cupboard Amazon Wishlist. These supplies will be shipped directly to Scrappy's Cupboard once ordered. 

  • See the Amazon Wishlist HERE

3.) Bring donations directly to Scrappy's Cupboard.

  • Scrappy's Cupboard is located in the University Center Suite 399.
Celebrate Homecoming week by completing a UTC-themed Scavenger Hunt! There are two different Scavenger hunts available: one on UTC's campus, and one that is completely virtual. Please only register for one of the two scavenger hunts. Download the GooseChase app onto your smartphone to play along!
