The Off-Your-Plate Program at the Dr. Raj Bala Agrawal Care Center

At the Dr. Raj Bala Agrawal Care Center, we recognize the growing needs
of our students, but we want you to remember that you're not alone! The
new Off-Your-Plate Program can work to provide students with basic
kitchen supplies, i.e. plates, silverware, bowls, coffee mugs, etc. 



Requesting assistance with kitchen dishes and utensils?

If you are a student requesting dishes, please schedule either an in-person or
virtual meeting with Alyssa O'Brien, the Care Center Graduate Assistant, at this
link below. Please notate in the "Notes" section what the meeting is entailing.

Interested in donating your new or gently used kitchen
dishes and utensils?

Interested in helping other students on campus receive basic kitchen supply
items? Please schedule a time with the Care Center Graduate Assistant to
coordinate drop-off of items. Items should be washed and either new or
gently used. Drop-off location will either be directly at the pantry or in the
Student Union Parking Lot, located between the Student Union and Bloch
