CARE Services provides food for ANY KSU student experiencing food insecurity. All supplies are based upon donations and are available to students as long as supplies are continually received.
Walk-In Pantry Locations and Hours:
Campus Pantry guidelines:
- Any KSU student, actively attending classes, may shop once every 30 days, no questions asked.
- All students are required to have a valid KSU ID.
- On their first visit and annually, students are required to read and sign a CARE Services Participant Agreement for Receiving Pantry Items form.
- After an Initial CARE Assessment and as determined by the case manager, a participant may be eligible to have access to the linens and personal care items and increased access to the pantry.
- A reusable bag will be provided at the initial visit. Upon each return visit, students MUST return their reusable bag to staff at the time of sign-in, to receive additional items.
- If a student needs different and/or additional food based upon dietary restrictions and / or living conditions, they are encouraged to let staff know at the time of sign-in. Staff will try to accommodate students’ dietary restrictions to the best of their ability.
- Students are not allowed in the designated storage areas where the food and/or personal care items are housed.
- Students are asked to only use these resources when experiencing food insecurity beyond their control. They are also encouraged to educate other students about the CARE Services and its services.
