About Archie's Closet

It's a place where non-perishable food and personal care items may be obtained by students and employees who find themselves in need of assistance.

Archibald Eagle's Food Closet is a service for all members of the USI community to promote the health and wellness of USI students and employees. Archie's Closet is supported by the cooperative efforts of the Recreation, Fitness, & Wellness Center and campus and community individuals and organizations. Foremost in this mission is providing assistance for those who need it, while responding to individual needs with respect and dignity. All requests for assistance are confidential.

Archie's Closet is located in the Recreation, Fitness, and Wellness Center. How do I make a donation? You can drop off anytime your non-perishable items at the main desk during RFW open hours.

Come to the Recreation, Fitness, & Wellness Center and "Ask for Archie" at the front desk. We recommend you call first (812-461-5268) to ensure availability. Archie's Closet is not open on weekends.
