Cats’ Cupboard limited online order service

Like the rest of campus, Cats’ Cupboard is taking steps to mitigate the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and keep the K-State community safe.

In order to maintain a sense of dignity and provide customer choice while also adhering to the social distancing protocols suggested by the CDC, Cats’ Cupboard has moved to an online order form until further notice. We will not be open for drop-in visits. 

Please note that we are unable to fill orders for new visitors at this time. If you have visited Cats’ Cupboard in the past, you are welcome to submit an order. If you have not visited in the past, we look forward to serving you in the future when normal campus operations resume.

We will be filling orders once per week. All orders submitted by Tuesdays at midnight will be available for pick up between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Thursdays only.

Once you have placed your online order, you will receive an email with additional instructions about pick up.

The complete process for any existing Cats’ Cupboard visitors is as follows:  

K-State students and employees who have visited and used Cats’ Cupboard in the past can place an order once per week for the items they prefer via our online order form. You can find additional regular updates via social media (@catscupboardksu on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook).

K-Staters will be asked to report family size and other basic information about their household, and then they can select items that best meet their personal needs. They will receive a confirmation email when the order is ready to pick up. That email will include a unique confirmation number that will be written on the order to maintain privacy. Again, orders will be available for pick up between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Thursdays only.

To eliminate food waste, we will place a drop-off tote near the orders where visitors can relinquish any items they will not use. 

We want to thank our visitors for their patience as we make this transition and express appreciation for our many donors for allowing us to continue to provide this vital service to our K-State community.

If you have additional questions or concerns, please email us at catscupboard@ksu.edu.

In terms of groceries, Harvester's offers mobile drop-offs several times per week throughout the area. Visit their website and enter your zip code for updated locations and times.
