Cats' Cupboard to celebrate one-year anniversary

Submitted by Erin Bishop

Cats' Cupboard will celebrate its one-year anniversary and World Food Day. Stop by, participate in Open Cupboard and have a delicious cookie baked by the K-State Bakery Science Club. The celebration will take place in the pantry from 2-4 p.m.

Open Cupboard is open to all faculty, staff, students and community members and will take place during the regular hours of operation, Oct. 15-19. Sixty percent of pantry users have indicated they learned about or decided to use Cats' Cupboard because a trusted person told them about the service. This is up 6 percent since the last Open Cupboard. This open house event is focused on increasing knowledge of campus and community resources, pantry services, location, promotion of word of mouth marketing, and a food drive to keep shelves stocked.

Raffle tickets will be given to each visitor. Visitors who bring a friend will receive an extra ticket.

Donate an item and get an extra raffle ticket. Donate a most-needed item such as canned chicken, canned fruit, or cereal and get two extra raffle tickets. Free food at area restaurants, unique gifts from local stores and other items will be given as raffle prizes. If you visited last Open Cupboard, come see how we've grown.
