The Food Abides: WKU Food Pantry

The Food Pantry was created to serve WKU students, faculty, and staff that are in need of food assistance. Items include canned goods, dry goods, and soon will include fresh vegetables grown in the WKU Community Garden in the backyard of the Office of Sustainability. Donations of food, funding, or volunteer time are always welcome.

The Food Pantry is here to serve the needs of all campus community members, whether for one meal or fifteen. Proof of need of assistance (such as EBT eligibility) is not required.

Food Pantry Hours:
Monday 8-10 & 11-3
Tuesday 12-5
Wednesday 11-4
Thursday 2-4
Friday 8-11

It would be great if the ALIVE center could assist WKU's office of sustainability in spreading the word to students and faculty! If there is any way the ALIVE center could help raise awareness of the food pantry please email me at megan.maddern730@topper.wku.edu
