Donate items when you Move Out For Hunger

Submitted by Shawn Funk

If you are moving out of the residence halls or out of Manhattan, you may find yourself with items that you don't want to pack. Rather than wasting those items, consider donating them to Cats' Cupboard.

K-State's Food Recovery Network and Cats' Cupboard have partnered with Housing and Dining Services to offer Move Out For Hunger.

Donation drop boxes are located in the lobby of each residence hall on campus for students to donate items as they move out from May 8-13. Items accepted include:

  • Unopened, non-perishable food items.
  • Unopened hygiene products.
  • New or gently used kitchen/household appliances.

Most-needed items include:

  • Microwaves.
  • Can openers — manual and electric.
  • Dish soap.
  • Toothpaste.
  • Deodorant.
  • Ramen noodles.
  • Shelf-stable milk.
  • Gluten-free items.
  • Shampoo.
  • Conditioner.
  • Hand soap.

Items that cannot be accepted include:

  • Perishable foods.
  • Used hygiene products.
  • Clothes.
  • School supplies.

Items can also be dropped off at Cats' Cupboard during regular hours. Cats' Cupboard is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday. Summer hours will go into effect beginning May 15, and Cats' Cupboard will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. Cats' Cupboard is located at 9 Fairchild Hall.
