Western Offering Holiday Meal Package For Students

Community

Western Technical College’s Cavalier Cupboard is offering a holiday meal package for eligible recipients on Dec. 12-14 during select times of the day.

The food pantry, which began in 2014 and has served over 2,000 students and their families, allows any Western student to receive a package consisting of items donated by the Hunger Task Force for a holiday meal.

“Everyone deserves to have a meal for the holidays,” said Bethany Wemette, community engagement assistant at Western Technical College. “We hope this package will ease the stress of purchasing the necessary ingredients to make a special meal.”

The holiday meal packages will be distributed on the following dates:

Tuesday, Dec. 12                                              2:00-4:00 p.m.

Wednesday, Dec. 13                                       11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

Thursday, Dec. 14                                            9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m.

Pickup will take place at the Cavalier Cupboard, 325 8th St., N., La Crosse, and at Western’s Regional Learning Locations. (NOTE: Hours at these locations may be different than those listed above)

Registration for the package ends Dec. 6. To learn more, visit www.westerntc.edu/food-pantry.
