Food and Other Basic Need Resources

by: Afure Adah

There are a lot of cool services that are offered to students here at MSU and a lot of students don’t know about them. Here are some cool services that I recently found out about that are super helpful. As students we are sometimes reluctant to seek out service, but hopefully if we know about them it won’t be as hard to anymore.

Campus Kitchen

During the school year, Campus Kitchen collects food from local restaurants (like Panera and Olive Garden among plenty of other restaurants) and makes it into meals for people facing food insecurity. Campus Kitchen (CK) rents space at the Crossroads Lutheran Campus Ministry, 331 Dillon Avenue, so that is where you can find it.

CK also hosts a bread cart and mini-fridge that is stocked with food in the entry of Crossroads where you can pick up some food if Crossroads is open but Campus Cupboard isn’t.

Campus Cupboard

Campus Cupboard is a food pantry in Crossroads where MSU students can come once a week with their MavCards, and grab one of each food items to put in their shopping bag. The food ranges from canned food, cereal and ramen, to refrigerated foods like carrots and eggs. There are also drinks like LaCroix.

Campus Cupboard is open every Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., so definitely check it out!

Crossroads Ministries also hosts $1 lunches every Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.. I personally have been to this and the food was so good and the fact that it was only $1 made it even better.
