KSU Campus Pantry

KSU CARES 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.

General Information

  • Any KSU student, actively attending classes, may shop once every 14 days.
  • All students are required to have a valid KSU ID.
  • On their first visit and annually, students are required to read and sign a 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 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.
  • Students are asked to only use these resources when experiencing food insecurity beyond their control. They are also encouraged to educate other students about KSU CARES and its services.
